Obituary

Calvin Theodore Bombay

Ogimaa Binesi (Chief Thunderbird)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cpl. Calvin Theodore Bombay Jr. (59) of Manitou Rapids, Saturday, April 11, 2020.

Cal lived in Rainy River First Nations most of his life, travelling and living in different towns/countries over the years for work and family, but love always brought him home. He was a simple man who had a zest for life who possessed and mastered many skills.

Cal was a proud member of P.P.C.L.I. 2nd Battalion Armed Forces – Land, Parachuteer. He spent 3 years in the early 80’s stationed – Cypress, Baden-Baden, Germany. Tour of Duty/Peace Keeping.

By heart and trade he was a builder, a precise and accurate carpenter who took great pride in his work and it showed through the creations he built around the community. He was slowly fixing up his home and he was proud of the uniqueness of his work that made it his home. He enjoyed many hobbies that went in hand with his artistic abilities, which included soap stone carvings, beading and making beautiful dream catchers. In his younger days he would hunt and trap. Fishing for him was a year round constant. Spring, around this time you would find him at the rapids dip netting preparing for that first spring feast. Many times you would find him enjoying his view on his back deck, listening to tunes with a few of his buddies and his favorite beverage… Blue.

Cal was a friend to many and was well known for helping wherever and whenever he was needed. He could either be calm and quiet man or loud and laughing. I’m sure those who knew Cal, would have a lot of good memories with him and would remember all of his stories. He was a proud father to all of his kids and accepted every one of them. He loved being a grandpa and wished he could have met all his grandchildren. Cal had a big heart and he will be truly missed.

I only knew Calvin for a short time and my memory of him is still indelible after nearly forty years. He was a gentle man with a big heart who was always kind and generous with his friends. For the six months in 1981 I knew him as a member of Moro Platoon going through PPCLI Battle School, he was well respected and liked by his peers and staff. He will not be forgotten by those who knew him, and I will continue to remember Calvin fondly.
