Wojcik's Funeral Chapel Winnipeg - Reginald Treacy Funeral Arrangements

REGINALD ARTHUR TREACY

Peacefully, on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 after final goodbyes to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, Reg passed from this life to the next. 
Dad will be remembered by his three sons, Michael (Jennifer), Patrick (Heidi) and Ron.  He leaves behind his most cherished gift, his wife Dorothy; grandchildren Nicole and Michelle were fortunate to have spent time during their childhood with Dad up North at Fishing Lake Lodge. The lodge was built log by log with his boys and Dot and it was the center of his life until his retirement. 
Reg was a man of great dreams and hard work and was relentless in his pursuit to bring Americans to Canada to revel in the wonderful Canadian north, where hunting and fishing were plentiful and the smell of Dot’s fresh bread woke you in the mornings. His boys will cherish memories of clearing the trees to build a runway at Fishing Lake, when no-one believed it possible. Balancing a grand piano between two canoes down the rapids was no easy feat, but Dad was never about easy.
Dad was born to Alfred and Sarah Treacy on September 19, 1921. Alfred had emigrated from Ireland in 1910 and set up a homestead in Balcarres, Saskatchewan. Dad was educated in the one room schoolhouse until the age of 13 when he moved with his older sister to Northern Saskatchewan to work on a mink ranch and then a lumberyard. By the time he turned 14 he was working a trap-line and by the end of his teens was a fur trader for the Hudson Bay Company. 
Reg enlisted in the war and was assigned to R.C.A.F. Bomber Command Crew 429 Squadron in England and then later the Frontline 127 Spitfire Wing in Europe until the end of the war. He had a job waiting for him after the war with the Hudson's Bay. It was during his time working in Mattawa that Dot’s future was sealed. They were married in Hornpayne Ontario in 1948. Together they managed the Northern Outpost Trading Stores at Sandy Lake, Deer Lake and Pikangikum and finally in 1960 their own lodge. 
Dad’s great grandchildren, Taylor, Liam, Brayden and Jesse will remember the man who always wore a hat and a woolen sweater, even in July, happily growing potatoes in his back yard. To the rest of us he will always be remembered as an adventurous soul with still another story to tell.
On Friday, April 11, 2014 Reg’s Funeral Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. in St. Mary’s Road United Church, 613 St. Mary’s Road @ St. Anne’s Road with Rev. Alice Szemok, presider. Burial will follow in St. Vital Cemetery, 236 River Road.
We would like to thank Deer Lodge (Fourth Floor) staff for the kindness and compassion shown our father and all of us, in the last two years. 


Time is too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love,
time is Eternity.
