DOBSON: Kenneth Leslie Dobson Jan. 9, 1932 – June 30, 2011. “Don’t be sad that I am gone, be happy that I was here”With the sun reflecting off the waves and the breeze rustling through the trees we remember with much love a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Kenneth Leslie Dobson. Ken was born in Fairfax Manitoba, the only son of Murray and Arva Dobson. He attended school in Fairfax and completed a degree in Agriculture at the University of Manitoba. He farmed near Fairfax until 1970 when he and his family moved to Carberry. He worked for Simplot until his retirement. He is sadly missed by his wife of 57 years, Donna, his children Brad (Bonnie), Karen (Egidio), his grandchildren Mitchell (Halle), Diana, Laura, Brian (Brenda), great- grandchildren Jonny and Celeste and by his faithful companion Benji. He loved all his family and friends dearly. Ken possessed an amazing gift of being able to create or repair almost anything. His mechanical skill appeared early in life – if some piece of equipment or tool he needed didn’t exist, he would make it. His home workshop became the source of beautifully crafted furniture, pictures, and decorative items his family and friends will always treasure. His summers at Clear Lake among his family and many friends have created treasured memories for all of us. He spent countless happy hours repairing cabins for neighbors as well as building his own. Everyone was welcomed to happy hour on the deck. His golfing friends will always remember their many hours spent on the course and in the clubhouse. He loved working in his yard looking after the lawn and garden while Mom tended the flowers. He loved to travel to new places and always had stories to tell of trips to Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Costa Rica and throughout Canada and the US. A memorial service was held in Carberry United Church on July 4 with interment in Carberry cemetery, Rev. Peggy Reid officiating. If friends so desire, donations may be made in his memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Carberry Palliative Care Services.
When I’m Gone
When I come to the end of my journeyAnd I travel my last weary mile,Just forget if you can, that I ever frownedAnd only remember the smile.Forget unkind words I have spoken;Remember some good I have done.Forget that I ever had heartacheAnd remember I’ve had loads of fun.Forget that I’ve stumbled and blunderedAnd sometimes fell by the way.Remember I have fought some hard battlesAnd won, ere the close of day.Then forget to grieve for my going,I would not have you sad for a day,But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay,And come in the shade of the eveningWhen the sun paints the sky in the west.Stand for a few moments beside meAnd remember only my best.

POOLE: After complications following a surgery, Arnold Walter Poole of Minnedosa, MB died peacefully with his family by his side in Brandon on Thursday, June 23, 2011. Arnold was born in Neepawa on July 24, 1927. He was the youngest of four children of Walter and Elizabeth Poole of Springhill, Manitoba. He married Helen (nee Jardine) in 1950 and they had two children during their marriage. He married Jessie Smith in 1989 becoming the stepfather to four. He was predeceased by his parents Walter and Elizabeth, his brother Elmer and his wife Jessie. Arnold is lovingly remembered by his family; son Ray (Heather) Poole, daughter Myrna (John) Nanson, eight grandchildren and two great- grandchildren. He is also cherished by his step family, Daphne (Ken) Scott, Karen (Jim) Klywak, Ross (Shawna Traill) Smith and Don (Jackie) Smith along with ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters Doreen Monson and Celia Tufts, brother-in-law Laverne Tufts and numerous nieces and nephews. In his childhood, his mother took Celia and him to Ireland to see relatives. He loved it there but told us how he was extremely seasick on the passage across and he did not want to get back on that boat to come back. This may have explained of flying in later years. As a young man he travelled to California to work for his Aunt and Uncle in their diner. He worked in a hotel in Winnipeg during the time of liquor rationing. As a bellman, he really showed that early spark of ingenuity and entrepreneur spirit that made him such a successful businessman and farmer. In 1945 Arnold’s father moved the family from Springhill district to farm five quarters in Oberon. In 1949 Elmer and Arnold took over running the farm operation in partnership. They farmed together until they sold in 1974. During their farming years, Elmer and Arnold were always willing to diversify and try new crops or techniques. They were inventors and innovators. In 1974, their last year of farming, they opted to grow rapeseed (now called canola) and sold the crop using futures, a relative new financial instrument at that time. After nail biting shorts, the price soared. The crop was a bumper crop. Their ship had come in and the farm equipment auction sale was the next year! The farm at Oberon became the Spruce Woods Hutterite Colony and was the start of a lifelong friendship with various Hutterians from Spruce Woods, Springhill and Cool Spring colonies. Arnold followed all of the latest farm technology developments with the help of his friends on the various colonies. For the first fifteen years after retiring from farming Arnold spent winters in Arizona and summers occupied in some form of work. He sold farm equipment for Lee Implements. He worked on the pipeline land restoration with Andy Aagard and helping various farming friends with seeding and harvest. After Jessie retired, they spent the best days of summer at the cottage at Clear Lake, winters in Arizona and later in Texas and any time in between at their home in Minnedosa. As with most farmers, Arnold and Elmer were avid curlers. One of the highlights for them was winning in Manitoba to go to Toronto to play in the Massey Ferguson for the national title in 1961. He traveled to Montreal World Expo in 1967 with friends. Innovations continued to be his interest all through his lifetime. In 1968 Arnold shot a deer with championship antlers, shooting it within a half mile of the homestead. The points score was unbeaten for many years and the rack was 66th in the Boone and Crockett. He never owned a computer but embraced technology in many other ways. He learned how to use a digital camera so he could continue to always have his latest set of photos to show you over a cup of coffee. He converted to being a cell phone user and tried out the GPS technology. He converted his records to cassettes only to now needed CD’s. He just recently bought the machine to do just that. He tracked the space station and watched the night sky when unusual events were forecast. All his life he was an avid golfer participating in the Grey Owl and the Tamarack tournaments just to name a few. In his lifetime he had two Hole-in-one events. He continued to golf in the Seniors Legends league and could still shoot his age at the time of his passing. There were a few years when the weather cooperated between down south and Manitoba that he golfed every week of the year. Arnold was never far away from a deck of cards. He and Jessie enjoyed crib and bridge. He turned the odd card at the casinos in Las Vegas, Laughlin and others. Many games with many friends over a life time of good times…. Up until his surgery, he was a regular for the morning card players at the Minnedosa Legion and might have even put the coffee on a time or two…..Arnold began driving Volkswagen diesel cars around 1980 and always enjoyed telling stories about the great fuel mileage. On more than one occasion he joked about stopping at a service station on a trip and having to take fuel out. Arnold loved to garden. His family benefited from monster onions and tomatoes by the pail. Jessie often lost good flower bed space to the tomato farm. He was still gardening last summer and only gave it up last fall. He was always helping one of the children or grandchildren with some form of house renovation, yard maintenance, weed control, tree trimming or whatever he thought they needed. Up until this past month, Arnold was a man full of laughter, love and stories. He could still chip it close to win the hole , or assemble the great crib to win the game. We will miss him greatly but having the memory his stories will keep him alive in their hearts.

MARTIN: Robert G. “Bob” Martin passed away peacefully on June 25th, 2011 with Shirley, his loving wife of 59 years, close by. Bob was born May 2nd, 1923 in Govan Saskatchewan where he, along with his three brothers Bruce, Alvin and Joe, were raised on the farm. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Nora and Oscar Martin, infant sister Eileen, and brother Bruce. Bob is survived by his wife Shirley, six sons, Larry (Heidi), Doug (Kari), Rob (Dori), Bill (Lorna), John (Elly) and Gord (Caroline) and fifteen grandchildren Robert (Joyanna), Carla (Ryan), Brian, John, Kristine, Andrew, Kelsey, Haley, Stacey (Mark), Lesley, Giulia, Madeleine, Emilie, Peter and Laura, and two great-grandchildren Liam, and Heidi and many extended family members. Following service in the Canadian Armed Forces WWII, and rising to the rank of Lieutenant in the reserves, Bob graduated in 1947 from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. While at the U of S, he met a special lady whom he soon followed to Winnipeg and courted during the 1950 flood by boating down highway #75 to her summer residence at “Cloverlodge Farm ” south of Morris, Manitoba. They were married in 1952 and subsequently began raising their family of boys (with two sets of twins). Bob started his career with the Country Guide publication and later with Manitoba Hydro’s rural electrification program. He was an entrepreneur who endured challenging economic times and prevailed through hard work and prudent business acumen. His first business venture was “Bob’s Esso” in Winnipeg. He soon moved to Brandon where, with different partners, he owned and operated the International Harvester Dealership which grew and serviced the community for over 30 years. Aside from the IHC dealership and other business ventures, he was also a successful farmer, rancher and land developer. Bob and Shirley raised their sons at Brookwood Farms on the outskirts of Brandon, which is now known as Brookwood Park. Brandon was good to Bob and Shirley and their growing family, and they were fortunate to know many tremendous people in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. With the support of Shirley, Bob was very involved in the community as President of the Brandon Chamber of Commerce, Chair of the Brandon General Hospital Board, and was also the Brandon Industrial Commissioner. Bob joined the Rotary Club of Brandon and eventually becoming President. He later joined the Rotary Club of White Rock and remained active in Rotary for over 50 years. In 1981, Bob and Shirley retired and moved to White Rock B.C. where they continued to actively enjoy many of life's blessings with their growing family and the many wonderful friends that they met through Rotary and their community. One of Bob and Shirley's greatest joys was hosting family and friends from far and near and enriching the lives of many. They enjoyed their west coast garden and their holidays to Maui. Bob will forever be remembered for his dedication to his wife and family, his inspiration to his nieces and nephews, his honorable service to the community and wonderful hospitality that he so generously shared with all who knew him.The family wish to thank the staff at Deltaview Life Enrichment Centre for Bob’s exceptional care. A Celebration of Life in Bob Martin’s honour will be held in the fall of this year. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local Alzheimer’s Association.

KOKORUDZ: Carol Winnifred Kokorudz (née Pender), passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Sunday, July 3, 2011 at the age 71 years. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and sister Carol Kokorudz. Leaving to cherish her memory are her husband of 46 years Ernie, children Todd (Diana), Shauna and Leanne (Chuck), beloved grandchildren Brendan, Ryan, Daralee and Kylie. Carol is also survived by brothers and sisters Joan (Chuck) Wardrope, Jim Pender, Norma Zagwyn (Mark), Judy Pender, Brian Pender and Linda Pender. She was predeceased by her parents Winnifred and Norman Pender and sister June Venn (Bob). Carol grew up in Toronto and was very involved with her brothers and sisters. She met and married Ernie in Toronto in 1964. They decided to take the city girl west and try farming in Decker, Manitoba. Carol was always up for a challenge and quickly maneuvered her way around the country way of life. Looking for their next adventure, Carol and Ernie decided to move their family to Brandon, where Carol owned and operated the Brandon Boarding Kennels. Her love for animals - of all kinds - made her the perfect person to care and love for the many pets that visited the kennels. Making Brandon her home, she was involved with several charities such as The Christmas Cheer Board and The Hearing Impaired Association. Carol’s greatest joy was being the number one fan of her grandchildren. Carol could be heard yelling the loudest at her grandson’s hockey games, or replaying her favourite dance move or song from the latest play or dance recital. Carol loved nothing more than watching all her grandchildren in their many varied activities. She always took great interest in what her children and grandchildren were doing and was proud of all their accomplishments. Carol was definitely a force to be reckoned with when she took on a cause for family, friends or strangers. She always had an ear to lend when you needed someone to listen and an opinion to give if you wanted it or not. Her kindness for others, her love for her family and friends and that feisty spirit will be sadly missed. At Carol’s request cremation has taken place and a private family graveside service was held at Rosewood Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, a donation can be made in Carol’s memory to the Brandon-Westman Christmas Cheer Registry, P.O. Box 50003, Brandon, MB, R7A 7E4 or Westman Dream for Kids Foundation, Unit 2-37-11th Street, Brandon, Manitoba, R7A 4J2.
