It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Harold (Bud) Munro.
Bud passed away peacefully and suddenly on September 20th at his home at the Yellowhead Manor in Langham.
Bud was born August 5th, 1949 to Jim and Shirley Munro. He spent his first four years in Radisson and then moved to Langham where the family operated Munro Shop-Rite. He graduated from WW Brown School and later went on to attend the University of Saskatchewan.
Bud headed off to MacKenzie for work, but ended up in Calgary working with George Bulitz until he started his own company with friend and partner, Eric Hansen. Perfection Roofing was well known and their hard work and can-do attitude brought them great success along with many stories of fun times. Bud loved Calgary for many reasons, most notably because he met his beautiful wife Karen there and it was home for them and their five children.
Bud was well loved. He was kind and a true friend who always looked for the good in people. His wit was unmatched and he could make just about anyone laugh. He loved reminiscing about old times and had the most incredible memory which made for excellent storytelling. He was so intelligent and took a great interest in history and movies. Had he had the opportunity, he could have easily been the all-time Jeopardy champion with all his knowledge! He spent many hours with his crosswords which kept his mind super sharp!
Bud was predeceased by his father James (Jim), his mother Shirley and his brother Dean. He is also joining many aunties, uncles, cousins and our special Grandma and Grandpa in heaven. He leaves to mourn Karen and their children Lynn (Glenn), Debbie (Jeff), Steven (Christine), Curtis (Tara) and Dean (Cheryl). Bud also leaves his precious grandchildren Christopher, Brayden , Nick, Amanda, Sam, Treyce and Ellis and great grandchild Jet. Also left to mourn are his loving sisters Karen (Bradley) Hunt and Sherry (Glen) Thiessen. His nephews Shawn Hunt, Dean Hunt and Donnie Munro and his niece Kristie Stefaniuk and their families will forever miss their Uncle Bud.
A very heartfelt thanks to Bud’s partner in crime and great friend, Harold Tallis as well as his sons Jordan, Trenton and Tyrone and their families who were very special to Bud. Words cannot express the gratitude for all of the love and happiness you gave to him
Bud’s final resting place will be in Borden with Mom, Dad and Dean. May he rest knowing he was loved and treasured.
I grew up in Langham, Bud was a few yrs older then me, he was one of the big guys, as we called them at the time. I always enjoyed being around Bud, as everyone did. Bud had something special, people were drawn to him, it was always so much fun if Bud was involved. He was always planning something and it was always so much fun just listening to him talk. I spent a summer with him in Calgary in 1973. OH MY Goodness, what a time this was. It has stuck with me all my life, I spend countless hrs thinking back to that time. I could tell so many stories.
My condolences to Sherry and the entire Munro family
