Donald "Bartz" Birin
BIRIN: Don L. (Bartz). September 8, 1934 - June 27, 2018. Bartz if asked was "39 years" of age. He lived on his acreage north of Brandon. He was an active golf member at Sunnyside. He played shuffleboard, darts, and pool at the A.N.A.F. plus crib and poker games on a daily basis. Bartz was a strong, outgoing, proud and loving Daddy'O, grandpa and friend. You would often find him customizing old items to new in his past time. He made everything Bartz's way! Bartz was a proud salesman for Weston's Bakeries and retired of 35 years of service in 1994. He leaves behind his children, Donna Shaw of Winnipeg, MB, Dennis Birin of Hamiota, MB, Tammy Birin of Pine River, MB, Candace (Barry) Chisholm of Crossfield, Alberta, grandchildren: Justin and Sara Birin of Brandon, and Jason Langan of Pine River, Manitoba. Bartz is now reunited in Heaven with his mother Stella, father John, and brother Richie. We feel our Daddy'O was called way too soon but feel that, there must be some renovations going on in heaven and God needed a modifier! Daddy'O you'll always be in our hearts and memories. A Beautiful Service was held on Thursday, July 5, 2018 at Memories Chapel officiated by Rev. Doug Neufeld and included an Honourary Guard salute by A.N.A.F. Lunch followed at the A.N.A.F. A BIG Thank you goes out to all volunteers. Donations in memory of Bartz may be made to the Brandon Humane Society, 2200 17th Street East, Brandon, Manitoba R7A 7M6.
