May 9, 1948 ~ September 13, 2022 (age 74)


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Howard (Duncan) Shorrock on September 13th, 2022. Duncan was born and raised in Minnedosa Manitoba to Howard and Margaret Shorrock on May 9th, 1948. Duncan met his best friend Brenda in October of 1969 and they were married on May 16th, 1970. Together they shared a beautiful journey for over 52 years. Duncan and Brenda had 5 children., Carrie with Mike (Danika & Jordan) Kathie with Don (Riley & Ethan), Candace with Steven (Seren), James (Thorington) and Robbie (deceased-1978) Duncan was also predeceased by his parents and his sisters, Hughene and Connie.

Duncan was involved in many clubs and activities in town. He was a member of Kinsmen, the local Bomber hockey team and was also a gun club instructor. Duncan was a long-time Legion member and volunteered for the Minnedosa Fire Department for 19 years.

Duncan worked for Brown & Murray’s in Winnipeg and then was a manager for the Neepawa location. He also worked for Wiltons, Kendosa, the Minnedosa Landfill, Evergreen Environmental, Co-op and most recently Piston Ring.

In his spare time, Duncan really enjoyed camping, travel and telling jokes and stories with friends and family. He loved to tinker around home, often with a faithful dog by his side. Dunc loved a good car show, a chip truck and anytime he could find a crib game or chase the ace with friends at the shack.

Duncan will be remembered as an amazing husband, father, family man and friend to many. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. We know a considerable loss in the community will be felt.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff at Minnedosa hospital for their wonderful care and support.
