Ronald James Forbes
10 October, 1938 – 19 November, 2020
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Ronald James Forbes on November 19, 2020 at the age of 82 years, after he contracted Covid-19.
Ron is survived by his brother Bruce (Marlene), niece Sandra (Bernhard), great-nieces and nephews and numerous cousins. He was particularly close to the Mackie family, originally of Ochre River.
Ron was predeceased by his parents, Edward & Elizabeth Forbes, nephew Douglas Forbes, niece Diane Forbes as well as his Uncle Walter & Aunt Ruby Forbes, with whom he was very close. Ron spent most of his life living at the farm in Oak Bluff and graduated from Sanford Collegiate. He was a proud member of the Eagle’s Club of St. Norbert for many years. He moved to Winnipeg in 1999 and then to St. Norbert Personal Care Home in January of 2009 where he resided until his passing.
There will be a private interment at Oak Bluff Cemetery and a celebration of life will take place at a later date when it is safe to do so.
We wish to thank the staff at St. Norbert Personal Care Home for their kind and compassionate care for the past 12 years.
If you wish, memorial donations can be made for the Oak Bluff Cemetery Maintenance Fund payable to RM of MacDonald and mailed to Box 51, Oak Bluff, MB R0G 1N0
