Gone But Not Forgotten – May to August 2019

When a RCMP Veteran passes away, their old colleagues pause for a moment to reflect on the good times they had and the memories they created.

Despite the times that the deceased member was serving their communities and away from their families, the Veteran’s family members are extremely proud of the contributions made by the recently departed.

The following Veterans have passed away in the past few months.  Information is provided to our Division from HQ and other sources and may not be received in a timely manner.
