ROBERT “BOB” GRAHAM MORGAN

May 17, 1949 – March 9, 2024

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved, Robert (Bob) Morgan, in the St. Boniface Hospital on the afternoon of Saturday, March 9, 2024 at the age of 74 years.


Bob is survived by his loving wife Chris; sister Margaret; children, Brent (Ana) and Marla (Novi); and his cherished grandchildren, Quinn, Will and Sophia.


Bob was born in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to Winnipeg with his family when he was 5 years old. He attended Brock Corydon School and River Heights High School. Playing football with the Fort Gary Lions was a big part of his adolescent years and he fondly talked about their championship win.


Bob served 31 years with the Winnipeg Police Service and for many years was a member of the Winnipeg Police Search and Recovery Team. Bob was a well respected and well liked policeman who had forged many close friendships with his fellow officers. Always so kind and loving. He loved to tell stories and was quite the jokester. He loved dogs and had a very special bond with his lab Shaker who he spent many hours walking at Harbour View dog park. 


Another very special place in Bob’s heart was the family cottage at Westhawk Lake, MB. Many hours were spent with his family on the lake tubing, swimming and socializing with family, friends and neighbours. He also spent many hours of his time and effort, along with the help of others, constructing and fixing the cottage to what it is today.


“You will be forever missed and we will always carry your memory in our hearts.”


In Lieu of flowers, please consider making contributions in Bob’s memory to any animal shelter or the Cancer Care Society of Manitoba.


A Celebration of Bob’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m to 3:00pm on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at the Niakwa Country Club, 620 Niakwa Road, Wpg. MB.


Bob's family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.

Gone far too soon. I was one of the lucky young recruits Bumper field trained in the north end. We continued to work on the same shift for the next 5 years. To say he left an impression on my career would be a huge understatement. My thoughts and condolences to Chris and all of Bumpers family. RIP Bob, till we meet again.

Bumper was my Sgt in the north end. He made a huge impression on me early in my career. He was knowledgeable and yet very personable. His sense of humor immediately put you at ease. I remember he didn’t like Halloween and one year the shift decorated his office while he was on his lunch break. We sure had some good times. I remember how he always referred to Chris as his bride and talked with so much pride of his kids. Rest easy my friend. My condolences to his family

We are so lucky to have called Bob our friend. The warm days in Cabarete playing games, sharing novels and laughing. We will miss his kind soul.

We first met Bob when we purchased our West Hawk Lake cottage 27 years ago. He was one of the first to welcome us to the neighborhood and we became immediate friends. We loved when we heard him come down the road because we always looked forward to seeing his ever smiling face and and of course his mischievous banter. We will truly miss you Bob.

Our sincerest condolences to Chris and family

Perfect photograph.....that was the Bob I met on the day we joined the Police Force together. Many, many good times at work, building at the West Hawk family cottage, diving for fun at various lakes and for the Dive Team in the Red River. We headed down to Florida in his new Camaro for a week in the early 70s - great times. Many dinners and social evenings together, and later memorable BBQs, parties with Bob and his new bride.
