It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father Ralph Kundel on September 4, 2019, at the age of 79, at St. Boniface Hospital

He is predeceased by his parents Alex and Minnie, brother Ray, and aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He leaves to mourn, his wife of 55 years Patricia, son Todd ( Karen ), brother Richard ( Lynne ),  grandchildren, Tyler, Carter and Reid, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews

Ralph was born and raised in Winnipeg’s North End. He attended Aberdeen, Pinkham, and Hugh John McDonald schools and ultimately graduated from Daniel McIntyre Collegiate.

He started his working career with Toronto General Trust, moved on to Eaton Bay Financial, and retired as Western Canada Manager with Co-operative Trust Company. While working, Ralph successfully completed all the requirements for his CGA designation, which he considered one of his greatest achievements after his marriage and son.

Upon retirement, he became actively involved in the “Sixty Plus Club of Rossmere”, and curled for many years. Earlier, he was active in the community as a baseball and hockey coach as well as sport convenor at Morse Place Community Centre.

A thank you to Dr. B. Goldenberg and all the Oncology staff at Concordia Hospital for all their support during Ralph’s battle with Pancreatic Cancer and Leukemia.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ralph's memory to the Cancer Care Society of Manitoba.
