Robert Allan Dodd
Passed on January 21, 2019
Peacefully on Monday, January 21, 2019 our dear husband, father and grandfather passed away suddenly at his home. Robert was born October 2, 1946 in Stonewall, MB and spent nearly his entire life living in the area. He will be lovingly remembered and missed dearly by his wife Jean, his daughter Gisele (Dan), his son Jason (Nancy) and his grandchildren Elle, Jacob, Ava and Abigail. Robert also leaves behind his siblings Edwin (Linda), Wayne (Gwen), Martin (Lil) and Sharon (Nick), brothers/sisters in-law Arlette (Edward), Francine, Rheal (Odile) along with so many nieces & nephews, friends & neighbours. He was predeceased by his parents John & Margaret, father/mother in-law Marcel & Beatrice and brother in-law Norman. Robert was the middle of five children that grew up on the farm west of Balmoral. Robert attended school in Balmoral then onto Stonewall Collegiate before heading to work in Winnipeg at Nutty Club and Canada Post. He married the love of his life Rejeanne (Jean) Dubois in August of 1968 recently celebrating 50 years together. He was then blessed with two children, his daughter Gisele in 1973 and his son Jason in 1977. Robert and Jean left the city in 1972 and bought a small farm in Balmoral where they worked side by side for 30 years raising their family along the way. Robert loved the farm, golfing, curling, playing cards and watching the Jets, Jays & Bombers. Robert loved being with friends, listening to music and dancing either at the hall or around the kitchen table. Every Saturday night he would have the Saturday Night Polka Party playing while watching Hockey Night in Canada getting ready for the local do. All of these activities recently came second to spending time with his grandchildren who loved to pester Papa stealing his treats and ice cream. We would like to thank the many family, friends and neighbours who have supported our family during our time of need. A Celebration of Robert’s Life will be held at Christ the King Church, 315 2 St E, Stonewall on Saturday, January 26 at 11:00 AM with a luncheon following at the Balmoral Memorial Hall, Balmoral. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

My sympathy to the Dodd family for the loss of Robert. Such a sudden and tragic loss. I have driven by the bird feeders at the farm during the Xmas bird count and have great memories of curling with Jason and his friends in the 1990s. Merlin
