Everyone at Cowsmo would like to send our deepest thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of Bob.
Robert (Bob) Crowe passed away unexpectedly December 23, 2020.
Bobby was raised on a dairy farm in Gilbert Plains but soon took flight to Winnipeg to start one of his many adventures ….pumping gas, changing tires and delivering fuel oil. Then back to Dauphin to sell vehicles and be a parts manager. Enjoyed all the great times hanging out with the Hydes at their cottage, playing volley ball, frisbee and waterskiing by day and cards late into the night.
Again back to Winnipeg to manage a gas station /car wash. Dauphin called him back to build a greenhouse/garden center/ florist shop. In his spare time he became a correctional officer. His love of dairy cattle, their caregivers and their families took him across Canada and down to Madison USA.
Bob loved every show, sale and exhibition and all the friends that he made along the way. He wore many hats; poet, mentor, barn boss, bus driver, story and joke teller and our own Mr. Fixit. Bob could imitate his good friends Ray Brown and Norm Atkins so well. Bob was the glue that kept our families together.
Survived by wife Marilyn, daughters Erin (Brian) Mckenzie, and Brett (Jamie) Hogue and his pride and joy; grandsons, Finn and Kade. Sisters; Heather (Rod) Hart of Carmen and Noreen (Les) Chudyk of Winnipeg ; sister-in-laws Kathy Crowe of Gilbert Plains and Wanda (Lindsay) Harris of Stonewall. 3 brother-in-laws; Kelly (Heather) Secord of Winnipeg, Kim (Susie) Secord of Dauphin, and Kirk of Dauphin. 2 sister-in-laws; Wanda (Owen) Connolly of Dauphin and Susan (Ed) MacQuarrie of Dauphin and cousin/almost brother Neil Hyde, along with extended families and friends. His dairy family, his greenhouse family, his corrections family, his hockey family …he loved and cherished you all.
Bob was predeceased by his parents Jim and Birda Crowe and brothers Bill and Dean, niece Denise, and sister in law Shawna Secord and in-laws Freda and Rollie Secord.
He will be fondly remembered for his endless jokes and welcoming smile….but oh my, Crowbar could snore.
In lieu of a service, go to that cattle show, sale or event… share a story, tell a joke and make more great memories. That was his wish.
