December 22, 1925 - June 12, 2018
It is with great sadness at our loss, joy at the love he gave us, and comfort from an abundance of beautiful memories that we announce the passing of Arthur, just ten days shy of the 75th Anniversary of his joining the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Arthur was born to Leslie Angus and Mabel Bruce, on his grandparents’ farm in Miniota, MB, and grew up on the Bruce family farm until he left to join the RCAF where he trained as a Navigator and saw service overseas. He remained with the RCAF for a few years after the War, flying between Edmonton and Whitehorse along the Alaska Highway posts. His last job was with Cottrell Forwarding in Winnipeg as a dock hand until retirement at the end of 1990.
In 1985 he married Adeline (nee Duda) and they enjoyed their retirement years playing crib, bowling, dancing, and driving to BC every summer. Arthur was involved in organizing the MSOS Games and the Cribbage games at the Fort Garry Legion.
Arthur leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Adeline and her daughters Valerie and Wendy, and his children from a previous marriage, Mike Angus, Jennifer Angus, and Sophie Eastman.
A memorial service will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in the Fort Garry Legion, 1125 Pembina Highway. As per Art’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will be held at a later date.
