Hugh Turnbull - Richard Wojcik



HUGH COLLINS TURNBULL 
May 18, 1939 - April 21, 2014
     It is with profound sadness that the family of Hugh Turnbull announces his sudden passing, at the age of 74, at Selkirk General Hospital. 
     Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife of 52 years and his best friend, Patricia, his daughters Beth (Brian) and Allyson (Jason), and his grandchildren Andrea, David, Scott and Eliza. He will also be sadly missed by his sister Bev (Cliff), brothers Bobby (Jean) and Barry (Karen), and many nieces and nephews who loved their Uncle Hughie. He was predeceased by his son Michael, mother Eliza, father Harry and brother Alexander. 
     Hugh was born on May 18, 1939, in Winnipeg to a close-knit family of humble means, and he grew up in East Kildonan and the North End. It didn't take long for him to make his mark as a fine athlete, although as a young boy he had to make do with old, raggedy skates with soft toes, newspapers for shin pads and anything else he could borrow to play the games he loved. A smart, talented baseball player, Hugh was a player-coach with The Pas TeePees team that won the 1959 Polar League Championship and was later inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005. He was also an outstanding football player at Isaac Newton and with the Weston Wildcats, and he even suited up as #56 for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1963. In 2010, he was inducted into the Manitoba Football Hall of Fame. The big, burly left-hander also carved out success on the golf course. A career low-handicapper and long-ball hitter at Rossmere, Elmhurst and Selkirk, Hugh won the Manitoba senior golf title in 1994 and was a three-time member of the provincial senior team. 
     Hugh passed on his love affair with sports, and the thrill of competition, to his children and grandchildren. Rarely did a very proud Papa miss a hockey game, horse-jumping event or dance competition. His family was absolutely everything to him, and he meant everything to us. He and Patti enjoyed special friendships with many people from Manitoba and also from across Canada and the U.S., who they met during winter months spent in The Desert', ie. Palm Springs, CA. We'll miss the way he carved up his famous baron of beef at Sunday suppers, his great big laugh when telling one of his own jokes and, mostly, those massive arms that offered warmth and safety. The passing of this wonderful man has jolted us beyond comprehension, but we feel blessed to have had him in our lives and will treasure the glorious memories of our time with Hugh... Dad... Papa. 
     In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Pulford Community Living Services Inc., 1146 Waverley St., Winnipeg, MB R3T 0P4. It is an organization that was near and dear to Hugh's heart. 
     A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held Friday, April 25, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Stephen's Anglican Church, 220 Helmsdale Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R2K 0V9. A light lunch will follow.

Doug Roxburgh - Richard Wojcik

DAVID CAMERON ROXBURGH

With deep sadness we announce the passing of David Cameron Roxburgh on Saturday, April 12, 2014. 
David is survived by his loving wife Euphemia; children Douglas (Shelley), Kay (Glen) Gary (Bobbie); and grandchildren Jane, Carter and Cole.
Born and raised in Catrine Ayrshire, Scotland dad spoke of fond memories of camping with his dad and brothers as a youth and riding motorcycles in early adulthood. Trained as a carpenter (Joiner) Dad took a big step and immigrated with his young family to Canada (1968) seeking opportunity.  For the next 30 plus years he displayed his carpentry skills far and wide while working for Winnipeg Building and Decorating. Although Canada was home Dad and Mom loved taking regular trips back to Scotland to reconnect and visit relatives and friends.
Many summers were enjoyed at the Family cabin at Fox Lake, Minaki, Ontario. This is where dad could relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, not to mention catch the odd fish. 
 At Dad’s request a private family gathering will be held in the near future.
