LARONDE (nee Brown): Alice Ann (August 6, 1936 - August 11, 2016): Peacefully at the Assiniboine Centre following a brief illness, Alice left this world to join her Creator. She is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband Bill; daughter Sharon Ward and beloved granddaughter Katey Ward; stepchildren Richard (Brenda) Laronde of Dauphin, MB, Pat (Peter) Kartes of Leask, SK and Nancy (Garth) Lindgren of Shellbrook, SK, along with 7 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Also left to cherish Alice’s memory are her sisters Phyllis Crawford and Faith Cristall, as well as nieces and nephews too numerous to count. Alice was predeceased by her parents Harry and Alice Brown; and siblings Shirley Campbell, Muriel Reid, Herbert Brown and Hazel Holden. We can only imagine the joyous reunion in Heaven today as she joins them. Alice was born and raised in southwestern Manitoba and it remained her home for the majority of her 80 years. She worked for the City of Brandon for 27 years until her retirement in 2001. Alice always loved playing cards and looked forward to her weekly cribbage nights for many years. In more recent years, Alice and Bill enjoyed their trips to the casino. She remained close to her family her entire life and made cherished friends wherever she went. Anyone who knew Alice could always count on her for a laugh and a hug! The family would like to thank Dr. Visser and the nurses and staff on A2 and palliative care for their kindness and consideration during this time. In keeping with Alice's wishes there will be no public service. The family will hold a private service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Alice may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 2B7, or online at www.cancer.ca/en/donate/?region=mb.

Growing up in the 30’s, Bob loved the country and farm lifestyle, 4-H, and at an early age he had a dream of becoming a registered livestock breeder. In 1946, Bob exhibited his first steer at Royal Manitoba Winter Fair in Brandon and continued showing livestock there for more than four decades and then showed at Denver, Chicago, Toronto Royal, Ag-Ex, Canadian Western Agribition, World Angus and Hereford Shows until his retirement. Bob’s family moved to Souris, MB in 1955 to the Hume farm. He married Joyce (Honeyman) of Hayfield, MB in 1959. In 1961, his family was in the dairy business shipping milk for 10 years. Bob and his brother Wayne formed Kinnaber Cattle Co., establishing a Shorthorn operation. Bob was named “Builder of the Shorthorn Breed” in 1970. He was instrumental in forming the Canadian Shorthorn Lassie Organization and president and director of the Manitoba Shorthorn Club. Kinnaber won three consecutive Grand Champion Females and two Reserve Grand Champions between 1969 and 1971, at the esteemed National Western Stock Show in Denver and two Champions at the 1968 and 1969 Chicago International. Bob judged many livestock shows including the Agribition, Toronto Royal, many 4-H achievement days and U.S. state fairs. While serving on the Manitoba Cattle Producers Board, Bob and fellow cattlemen initiated the Douglas Bull Test Station in the late 60s. In 1969, Bob served as the first president and founding partner of Bar- 5 Simmentals, Brandon, MB. Bob initiated the importation of Simmental cattle from Europe. Achilles Cattle Co. hired Bob as manager to promote and sell Simmental semen all over the world. In the 70’s, the Hereford herd was established when his children’s love for showing cattle begun. While serving as director of the Canadian Hereford Association, Bob initiated the formation of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association (CJHA) hosting the inaugural youth event at Kinnaber in 1979. Bob was intrigued by the Angus breed and developed a small herd in the 80’s. His experience with multiple breeds lead him to be named Sire Selector and Manager of the Beef Program for Western Breeders / Alta Genetics, Balzac, AB, in 1985. Bob was inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1995. In 2007, Bob and Joyce together were inducted into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame for their contribution to agriculture and the beef industry. In 2003, Bob and Joyce wrote, “A Cattleman’s Walk Down Memory Lane”, a book chronicling their lifelong experiences in farming and livestock industry. Bob and Joyce retired to Boissevain in 2008. Bob was preceded in death by his parents, father- and-mother- in-law Findlay and Rosella Honeyman and brother -in-law, Keith Honeyman. Bob’s family will remember - A true stockman never dies, he's just selected by the best judge of all.  In memory of Bob, donations may be made to Bob Gordon Memorial Fund with proceeds going to youth and agriculture endeavors, Box 605, Boissevain, Manitoba, R0K 0E0.
