Bobby Clarence Thiessen was born to Abe and Agatha Thiessen on August 9, 1952 in Morden, MB. He was loved nu numerous people from Morden and Winkler and beyond. He loved his Cottonwood family at Salem Home where he lived for over 49 years. Bob’s love for life was displayed by being involved where there was action: a Salem Home board meeting or at one of his many interests, fishing or eating fish, fast cars; as long as he was in the fastest one, emergency vehicles and only if the lights were on and the sirens were blaring, camping and especially at Camp Arnes and watching boxing or wrestling on TV. Bobby attended the Oak Haven School. He loved going for walks and the bike rides on the bike for the handicapped at Salem. Bob was always happy; well most always especially when his meals were delivered on time. He had tons of patience simply because he never used any of his!
Bob’s family is forever grateful for the wonderful staff at Salem Home who had tons of patience. A special thank you for all the love and care given by his niece, Kelly Anne Roy, who spent countless hours enriching Bob’s life in so many ways.
