Vinck, (Des) Desire John Joseph

VINCK: Desire John (Des) Vinck died peacefully at Souris Hospital on June 1, 2016 at the age of 73, after a 1 1/2 year battle with multi system atrophy. He is survived by his wife Marie (Marcq), his daughter Michelle (Sydney, Whitney, Avery); his daughter Melanie (Maya, Saffia). He was predeceased by his parents John and Zelia and infant sister Alice. Des was born July 6, 1942, in Hartney. He enjoyed farming and took over the farm in the Grande Clairiere/Lauder  area after his marriage to Marie. He enjoyed all animals, playing pool, ball, curling, doing small crafts and helping with different events in both communities. He enjoyed his coffee outings after retirement but didn’t care for traveling too far – except after much persuasion – decided to go to France to visit cousins who had been here to visit with us. The most important part of his life were all his girls. He was so proud of them and always ready to help when needed. Funeral Mass was held June 6, 2016 at St. Jean’s Catholic Church in Grande Clairiere with Celebrants Father Eric Zadji and  Father Paul Bisson. Pallbearers: Harvey Mahy, Garry Jones, Terry Schuddemat, Adrian  Bertholet, Daryll Logeot, Maurice Dubreuil. Family tribute, Solange Rey; Liturgy, Marc Boulanger, Tim Murphy; Ushers Gaston Boulanger, Rollie Lobreau. Interment in Grande Clairiere Cemetery. In memory of Des, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

  6. Marie and family,
    Our deepest sympathy to you as you grieve the loss of Des.We heard the news on Sunday when we were over in Lauder.May you have family and friends to hold you up at this time.He was a friendly man and will be missed by many. Hugs, Claire and David.

  7. Marie and Family,
    My deepest sympathy to all of you on your loss of Des. Des was always expressing that if cattle should get out and I was alone on the farm, to call him and you Marie. That always made me feel grateful that you both were just a phone call away. Memories like this will fill my heart with gratitude and sadness too. The world is now missing a truly kind, gentle, and thoughtful man.
    Thinking of you,
    Margaret Vinck
