Jan 18, 1933 - Apr 25, 2007 

Peacefully at home surrounded by his family, Connie passed away after a brief struggle with cancer on April 25, 2007. 

Connie will be deeply mourned by his loving wife Isabelle (Maes) of 47 years and survived by his son Randy (Yvonne) and daughters Wendy (Mike) Kukelko and Shawnda (Darryl) Muir and grandchildren Scott, Leanne, Justin and Devin. Also mourning his passing; his mother Marie, sisters Margaret Ross (Rod), Joyce Dusik (Rudy), Donna Burns (Rodney), brothers Lorne (Pauline), Victor (Vivian), John (Beverly); his cousins George (Donna) Bossuyt and Doreen Anseeuw; his in-laws Oscar (Evelyne) Maes, Clarisse (Steve) Radvak, Anna (Phil) Sarrasin, Albert and Yvonne Maes; and many nephews, nieces and friends. 

Connie was predeceased by his father, Cyril Archie Bossuyt in 1997. Connie was born in Fort Gary and was the eldest son of seven children working on his parent’s family dairy farm near present day Waller Ave. In 1943, the family moved their dairy/grain operation to Oak Bluff where they continue to farm today. He enjoyed working the fields as well as doing chores in the barn, with his brothers, his children and many nephews/nieces. Harvest was his favorite time of the year. 

In 2000, Dad and Mom began their semi-retired life and moved into Southpark Estates. There he thoroughly enjoyed the companionship of a very dear community of retired folks who he loved to visit and play cards with. He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus. 

Connie was a generous and loving father/husband who enjoyed traveling with his family. He taught us many values including a strong work ethic, try your best in sports, study hard at school and support your church and community. 

His biggest smiles came from watching his grandchildren and their accomplishments. Many a night he was cheering them on at Oak Bluff Community Center and “kibitzing” with many of the players and families. Dad loved grandchildren, sports, traveling, Johnny Cash and yodeling, blue berry pie, fishing and his fishing buddies, Toronto Maple Leafs, playing cribbage, Belgian bowling in the hayloft and weed free fields. 

The family would like to thank Dr R Blouw and the palliative home care staff for their compassion in his final days. Prayers will be at Mary Mother of the Church at 85 Kirkbridge Dr, Wpg on April 26 at 7:00 p.m. Funeral Mass on April 27 at 12:30 p.m. with Father Carl Tarnopolski officiating. Lunch will follow at the Oak Bluff Community Center. Cremation and burial will be at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mary Mother of the Church or the Oak Bluff Community Center – “in memory of Connie Bossuyt” (cheque made out to the RM of MacDonald, Box 100 Sanford, Mb, R0G 2J0).
