Milford Kilfoyle

1928 – 2008

On Wednesday, July 9, 2008 Milford passed away peacefully at Portage General Hospital.

Milford was born 80 years ago on April 5, 1928. The son of an English war bride, and an Ontario farm boy turned soldier, Milford grew up in the Pathhead district north of MacGregor. The small farm that his father Robert purchased had to support him and his wife Martha, and their 5 sons and 4 daughters. Life back then on the farm was hard, but it was also a great learning experience. Everyone had to pitch in and work together to share the load. The close knit rural community produced friendships and memories that would stay with Milly his whole life.

Following his school years on the farm, Milford went off to work and eventually joined Manitoba Hydro, where he worked for 12 years. Following his career with Hydro, Milly joined the Manitoba Highways department in MacGregor where he worked for 22 years, until his retirement in 1991.

Milford was an avid sportsman. In his youth he played baseball and curled. Later he was an avid fan of both sports, as well as football and hockey. He was also an outdoorsman and especially enjoyed deer and moose hunting with his twin brother, Clifford. When he was not enjoying these pastimes, he could often be found cruising the countryside in his truck with his faithful dog Trigger at his side.

Milford was a truly unique character in MacGregor, and had countless friends in the region and all across the province. His home was frequently a meeting place for old friends and new to get together to reminisce about past adventures and good times. His memory of past events and details was legendary, as was his quick wit and ability to entertain with stories. He was kind and generous, with a special fondness for his numerous young nieces and nephews. He will be remembered and missed by many. Milford was predeceased by his parents, Martha and Robert; brothers Melvin and Howard; sister Margaret McVannel; and brother-in-laws Russ Tarr, Larry Naswell, and Bill Ross. He leaves to fondly remember him his brothers Clifford (Joan)of MacGregor, Bob(Joan) of Bandon; sisters Lillian Tarr (MacGregor), Alice Ross(Cumberland, BC), and Isabelle Naswell(Courtney, BC); brother-in-law Harry McVannel(MacGregor); sister-in-law Lucille Robertson(Winnipeg), and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorial service was held on Monday, July 14, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in the MacGregor United Church with Sandra Rex officiating. Interment followed in the MacGregor Cemetery.

If friends so desire, memorial donations in Milford’s memory can be made to the MacGregor Health Foundation, Box 250, MacGregor R0H 0R0 or the MacGregor United Church, Box 56, MacGregor, R0H 0R0.

William (Bill) Kuhn

Peacefully, on July 10th, 2008, with his family at his side, Bill, age 83, passed away at the Seven Regions Health Centre in Gladstone, Manitoba. Bill was predeceased by his parents William and Ida Kuhn. Remaining to forever cherish his memory are Elsie, his beloved wife of 55 years; his son Douglas and his wife Julie of Westbourne; and his daughter Gayle of rural Brandon. Grandchildren Corey and Carrie had a special place in his heart. Bill is also survived by his sister Helene Lloyd of Penticton, BC.

Born in Katznase, West Prussia, Germany on September 29, 1924, Bill immigrated to Canada at the age of one. His childhood was spent on the family farm in the Austin area. After finishing school, Bill joined the RCNVR serving on both the Atlantic and the Pacific. When WW II was over, Bill joined Manitoba Hydro. On October 12, 1952 Bill married Elsie, and his job took them to Ashern, Lundar, Stonewall, and finally Westbourne where he was the District Supervisor. After seventeen years of climbing poles, Bill decided it was time for a change. For the next ten years, with Elsie at his side, they owned and operated Bill’s Red & White (later Bill’s M&M) in Langruth. In 1976 they sold the store and Bill returned to his roots, purchasing a grain farm in the Lakeland area. Bee keeping was Bill’s passion. Over the years he expanded his apiary into a large successful business, for a few years in partnership with Jim Poschenrieder. Health reasons prompted the sale of the business in 1984. In semi-retirement Bill spent countless enjoyable hours out in “the shop”. Bill and Doug were best friends and worked side by side in all ventures. A stroke in 1995 brought his working career to a close. In 2001, Bill and Elsie moved into an apartment in Gladstone where he lived until his passing.

Bill was honoured to be a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #162 in Langruth. He was recognized as a Life Member and received his 50 year pin in 2005. He held various offices including two terms as President.

Memorial service was held on Tuesday, July 15, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in Clarke’s Funeral Chapel, Gladstone with Sandra Rex officiating. A private family interment took place in Austin Cemetery.

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 824-18th Street, Unit 3, Brandon MB R7A 5B7 or to the Northwest Handi Transit, Box 757, Gladstone, MB R0J 0T0.

Bradley Alvin Mayor

With saddened hearts, we announce the sudden passing of our son, brother and best friend Bradley Alvin Mayor on July 12, 2008.

Brad was born to Lori and Craig Mayor in Brandon, MB on December 30, 1989. Brad lived in Neepawa, MB and had recently moved to a beautiful place on the lake, at Rivers, MB with his dad, so they could be closer to his mom and Krystal as this was very important to Brad.

Brad lived and enjoyed his life to the fullest! He enjoyed any sport but was more involved in winter sports. Brad started hockey at a young age and he excelled quickly to become a very skilled and valuable player. Brad always gave 110% on the ice and to his team. He enjoyed snowmobiling with his dad and also snowboarding. He was looking forward to his new life in Rivers and finding employment in the Brandon area.

Brad’s life growing up was a little different than most, and many hands were there helping him to grow and learn. His Dad and sister were always there for him, along with his two grandmas, his grandpa and aunts and uncles. He was the “apple of both Grandmas’ eyes” both who thought he could do no wrong. Brad challenged the world and did more in his short 18 years than most would have. His Dad was always chasing after him and when Craig couldn’t Grandma Shirley would. He loved to make people laugh and when he arrived at a place he would get the party started, usually by dancing and singing songs.

His door was always open to his friends and there was always a place to stay for his buddies. In a recent conversation with his cousin, he said “he considered his Dad as one of his best friends, not just a Dad” and his Dad shared that Brad was “his right hand man!”

Buddy “B”, as he was fondly called, was also a great brother to Krystal and he also considered her more of a friend than just a sister. He had nothing but good things to say about his big sister and loved her dearly. Brad also had a very special relationship with his mother. He was a caring young man who would often stop to visit or take his mom out to the mall all on his own. Brad had recently graduated from High School and was figuring out what he wanted to do with his life; as most young men are. It was obvious to those who were closest to him that he was “coming into his own” and becoming a great young man who everyone could be proud of.

Brad is survived by and will be sadly missed by his mom, dad, sister Krystal, Grandma Marge Legge, Grandpa Norm Mayor (Lois) and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins too many to mention. He was predeceased by his Grandma Shirley Mayor in 2005 and Great Grandpa Legge.

A Celebration of Brad’s Life was held on Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. in the Yellowhead Arena with Rev. Joe Ball officiating. Urn Bearer was Lance Nugent; Honourary Pallbearers were Roshton Shaman, Dustin McDonald, Ian Clements, Lee Martin, Justin Willis, Eric Seddon, Brett McPhee, and all friends in attendance. Eulogy was given by Murray Martin. Attending in a group and forming an honour guard were coaches and teammates of the Neepawa Tigers Hockey team.

Brad Mayor- “kind of a big deal!”
