It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Herbert Malcolmson on October 11, 2011 at Deer Lodge Centre at the age of 93 years.

Herb will be sadly missed by his three daughters, Karen and children Ashley and Peter Stepaniuk, Judy and husband Sandy and children Andrea and Katie Fowler, and Linda and husband Dave Reinisch, and by his son Alan and children Shea and Jared Malcolmson.

Herb was predeceased by his wife Meryl in 2008 and by his brothers Murray, Don and Harry and by his sisters Wilhelmina and Bernice.

Herb was born May 14, 1918 in Carman, Manitoba. After completing his degree in Agriculture at the University of Manitoba in 1940, Herb enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and served as a navigator with the 179 Squadron Coastal Command Station in Gibraltar during the Second World War.

Herb and Meryl were married in 1945 and together they raised their four children. Herb had a successful career with CIL and then Dupont of Canada in the Biochemical Division. Over the span of his career, the family lived in Vancouver, Calgary, London, Montreal and Toronto. Retiring in 1979, Herb and Meryl returned to Winnipeg and to the farm in Carman. Herb's greatest joy was spending his summers at the farm in Carman, gardening, golfing, listening to the bagpipes, and enjoying a glass of scotch at the end of the day. A kind and caring soul, it was always a pleasure to be with Herb. He had a great sense of humour and loved to spend time with family and friends.

A special thank you to Terri and to the staff of Deer Lodge Centre, especially the staff on Tower 3 and 7, for their care, compassion and friendship.

A service of remembrance will take place at Doyle's Funeral Home in Carman Manitoba on October 22 at 11:00 AM. If friends wish, donations may be made to the Deer Lodge Foundation, 2109 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg MB R3J 0L3 or in Herb's memory.

Far from the mist covered hills of the Highlands

The lochs and the glens that once called his own,

The wind o'er the sea brings the sound of a piper

And the soul of the Scotsman dreams fondly of home

Terry McGarry, 1998
