Obituary

Robert Murray Flett

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Robert (Murray) Flett, 75, who passed away surrounded by family on October 7, 2020. Murray was born on December 7, 1944 in Selkirk, MB. After graduating high school, he went on to join the RCAF in 1963 and became a part of the Military Police and then went on to be an Electrical Generating Systems Tech. Upon retirement from the Military in 1993, he became a consultant/contractor for Power Generating Systems working in B.C. and Manitoba mostly for the Military. He was so happy and proud to go back to Alert, Nunavut to be supervisor of the new power plant he helped to construct while still serving. After a second retirement Murray, being a man that cannot sit still, became a guard for RCMP Selkirk Detachment. In 1976 he met Darcy Lee Bugg at the Heaven and Hell mixer in Kamloops, B.C. and went on to wed in November 1979 in Ottawa, Ont. and had 3 children, Kirsten, Kaylea and Cory. Murray loved to putter around the house, there wasn't anything he couldn't do and if he didn't know he would learn. Murray was a great cook but one thing everyone loved was his bannock. Known for his humour, infectious smile and laugh Murray will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. Murray was predeceased by his mother and father Stanley and Margaret Flett, his brothers Kenneth, Kelvin and Jimmy and his great nephew Matthew Watson. He is survived by his wife Darcy, his children Kirsten (Tim), Kaylea (Lindsy) and Cory (Erynne), grandchildren Genevieve and Lachlan, his sister Karen (Howard), sisters-in-law Brenda Flett and Dawne Hart (Willy) and numerous nieces, nephew and great nieces. Family was everything to Murray including his loyal companion, Keesha. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and he loved them immensely. Thank you to all the staff on the Medical/Surgical Ward in the Selkirk Regional Health Centre and to Dr. Sexton for the care and compassion shown to Murray. There will be no funeral service but there will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Alzheimer's Society, CancerCare Manitoba for Prostate Cancer or any pet rescue of your choice.
