1927 2016 Andrew Benedet passed away on Thursday December 1, 2016 at Rock Lake Personal Care Home in Pilot Mound, MB. He is survived by his five children and their families and one sister and her family. Andrew was born on August 11, 1927 and lived most of his life in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway for many years and after his retirement enjoyed traveling west in Canada to spend time with family and friends. He loved visiting, telling jokes, and could play endless games of crib. When his health declined he moved to Manitoba to be closer to family here and Rock Lake Personal Care Home became his new home. We are deeply grateful to the staff who provided care with compassion and humor and gave him comfort and dignity over the last six years. Andrew will be missed but is forever in our hearts and memories. In keeping with Andrew's wishes, cremation has taken place. A private celebration of his life will be held at a later date in Morden, MB and Thunder Bay, ON. Donations in Andrew's memory may be made to the Boy Scouts of Canada, 1345 Baseline Rd. Ottawa, Ontario, K2C 0A7 or to a charity of your choice.
