Obituary for David Bruce Inkster

David Bruce  Inkster
David Bruce Inkster passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at Brandon Regional Health Centre. He was born to Donald L. C. Inkster and Mary Inkster (Inkster) on February 18, 1940 at Souris Hospital. “Bunk”, as he was known by most, received his elementary education in the country school of Delton and took his high school at Nesbitt, Manitoba. Upon finishing school in 1957, he joined Manitoba Power Commission (Manitoba Hydro), working as a lineman, he then became a journeyman, and finally a supervisor in Winnipeg during his 14 years with the company. In 1956 Bunk met the love of his life, Alice (Sheane) and they married in Souris, Manitoba on July 30, 1960. After the passing of his father in 1970, Bunk and Alice moved to the farm at NW 5-8-18W, RM of Oakland, and took over in 1971. As in all things, he was dedicated, and made the farm prosper. In 1986, he was asked to serve as reeve for the Oakland Municipal council. Bunk was a “thinker”, and it served him well in this capacity for the next 26 years. Due to the failing health of both Alice and himself, he had to resign in 2017. Throughout his years on the farm, he also served on the Manitoba Pool Elevator Board both locally and at the sub district level. He made numerous friendships, and was held in esteem by all. A Celebration of David's Life was held on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at Memories Chapel in Brandon. He will be sadly missed by his wife of 58 years, Alice, and his only sibling, Jo Ann Hodgson (Inkster), as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Uncle Bunk became like a second father and grandfather to niece Lori Carlisle and her children Shane, Savanna and Paul. Bunk will ever be remembered for his “wit and wisdom”!
