November 10, 1932 – December 30, 2016
Robert Charles Stanley (Stan) Audette Sr., 84, passed away on December 30, 2016, in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Stan is survived by his wife Beth (Elizabeth) of 58 years; son Stan Jr (Dorian); daughter Jane Dyck (Carl); son David (Jessica); daughters Louise (Kevin) and Marie Flather (David); brothers Moise (Marianne), Gerald (Joan) and John (Iris); sister Ann Chapman;13 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Born on November 10, 1932 in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Stan had a lifelong passion for learning, evidenced by his bachelor, masters and doctorate degrees achieved in Canada and the US and a one year sabbatical from being a professor at the University of Manitoba (Pharmacy) in the United Kingdom. It was during the time of these travels that two children were born in Canada, one in the US and two in Great Britain. In the early 70’s the call of the land (and the chickens) drew him away from teaching to acquire a farm south of Winnipeg. As a result of health issues in the early 1980's the farm was sold and the move was made to an acreage south of Winnipeg. Genealogy, short term work experiences behind the counter at local pharmacies, travel across Canada, the US and Asia and lots of golf filled the next 30+ years. He was a learned resource on multiple topics and was always eager to engage people he met on their interests and opinions.
Stan’s life will be celebrated between 12:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Friday, January 6, 2017 with a brief program beginning at 1:00 p.m. at 603 Wellington Crescent at Academy Road.
