Our condolences go out to Heritage Group member Lucien Lussier, whose wife of almost 57 years passed away on July 13. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Alzheimer Society.
We are sad to report the sudden passing of Dale Swirsky, member of RRC’s Academic Success Center. The CBC and Basketball Manitoba have nice articles about his time with his other passion, basketball. And there is a description of his role at RRC on the ASC webpage under Dale Swirsky.
The ASC is collecting messages and stories of Dale to pass on to his family so they will have a testament of his impact at RRC. If you have any message you’d like to contribute, even just a few lines, please write to Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glen MacRae, not long retired after 34 years as Building Services Manager at RRC, passed away at the Health Sciences Centre at the age of 66 years.

Friends and relatives are encouraged to share in memories, stories and condolences for the family by visiting Glen’s memorial page at IntegrityDeathCare.com.
William (Bill) Frederick Kniskern passed away May 26, 2017. Bill taught at Red River College for 25 years as a Technical Communications Instructor. Bill had a big heart and was generous to a fault.

Taki (Takefume) Nishimura passed away May 26th. A superb instructor and Department Coordinator who was well-respected by both his peers and students, Taki taught literally hundreds of electrical students and apprentices in the Electrical Construction field for well over 30 years and was very proud of the quality of the program.
A donation to the Manitoba Heart and Stroke Foundation in his memory would be appreciated.
