Roy William Wilton

Roy passed unexpectedly on Jan 9, 2019 at 71 years of age. He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife Gertie, their family and many friends.

Roy grew up on the family farm near Roland. He worked for Manitoba Hydro for a

number of years, sold real estate for a few years and then worked as a contractor on many construction and mechanical related projects. He was very talented with the uncanny ability to figure out anything mechanical.

Roy and Gertie spent many memorable summers at Red Deer Lake in Ontario and 10 winters in Florida. They built a home in Hazelridge, and then in Pinawa and finally returned to his roots in Roland building a home in 2009. He greatly enjoyed being part of the community and participated actively in shuffle board, golf, curling, bowling, and the pumpkin fair. Roy enjoyed dancing and travelled to many square dances and in recent years he was passionate about old time dances.

Roy had a heart of gold and a genuine interest in people. He was always ready and willing to lend a hand and contribute in any way he could. Roy played a significant role in building the memory garden located next to the United Church in Roland.

Roy was predeceased by his parents Albert and Miriam, brother Graham and sister Lois and is survived by his brother Tom.

Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.at the Roland United Church.

My sincere sympathy to all of the family .I went to school with Roy and was very surprised to have to guess who he was at a pumpkin fair a few years ago. Amazing how time flies. You will remember and be thankful for the wonderful experiences and places you have shared.
