Roland 'Sky' Turcotte

With great sadness, the family of Sky Turcotte announces his gentle passing on March 26, 2004. He was 76 years of age.

Sky leaves behind, cherishing his memory, his loving and devoted wife Lois. He also leaves behind his two sons, Roland (Pam), Byron (Cindy-Lou), and his daughter, Cindy Burley (Jim). Sky was also blessed with three stepchildren, Derek Cooley (Laurie), Vanda McQuinn (Ken), and Naomi Lafrance (Ron). He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Bill, Treena, Richard (Erin), Jamie (Corinne), Danica and his step grandchildren, Desiree, Pearl, Kenny, Natalie, Victor and Dillon. He also had five great grandchildren, Candle, Jacob, Julia, Charis and Joshua. He leaves two siblings, Solange McKay (Gerry) from B.C. and Ray from Winnipeg, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews from across Canada.

Sky was born on February 3, 1928 to Marge and Herbert Mabb in Fisher Branch, Manitoba. Christened Roland Antoine Joseph William at birth, it became apparent he would be a rather tall fellow and received his nickname Sky, at the age of 14. He and his ten brothers and sisters moved to Kenora when he was still a youngster.

He was predeceased by his parents and seven sisters, Grace, Doris, Pauline, Blanche, Cecile, Leona, Jeanette, and one brother, Leo.

Sky started at C.P. Rail in 1943. He loved his job and would retire 47 years later as a Via Engineer. They all said he was one of the smoothest operators around. He was devoted to his children and when he was not "on the road" he rarely missed any of their activities. Weekends and many week nights were spent at the old Rabbit Lake Community Club just hanging out with the old gang while the neighbourhood kids enjoyed the rink.

Sky was a Legion member for most of his adult life. He loved the camaraderie, the odd game of darts, and many a game of crib that was played with his C.P.R. buddies. He loved a good feed of walleye and in his middle years spent many hours on Lake of the Woods. Sky and Lois developed a taste for travel around this time. They enjoyed trips to Germany, Portugal and Mexico at different times and of course, numerous trips across Canada.

As he got older, he liked to look at the Lake more than be on it. He and Lois spent many happy years at Beauty Bay doing just that and spending much quality time with good friends and family at their home. Long, pleasant nights were spent over the shuffleboard or at the card table.

Cremation has taken place. There will be a Memorial Service at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 at 11 a.m. Honourary pallbearers will be his grandchildren, Bill, TLT, Richard, Jamie and Danica.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations be made to the Alzheimer Society in Kenora.

"On your last run, Sky, we send our love and our wishes that you reach your destination safely. We know you will be on time."
