Original Nor'Wester Passes Away

Bob "Fuzzy" Zalusky, a founding member of the Nor' Westers lacrosse passed away on August 15, 2019. Fuzzy, known for his over hand fake, scored the winning goal in an exciting double overtime Midget  playoff win over Clifton Community Centre. Bob was instrumental in the starting of Boyd Park lacrosse, coaching the Pee Wee team with Warren Schau. Knee injuries shortened  Bob's career and we went on to becoming an avid fisherman and out doors man. Bob will be missed by all in the Nor' Wester family.

Below is obituary from the Winnipeg Free Press:

ROBERT (BOB) (FUZZY) ZALUSKI

Peacefully, after a short illness, with family by his side, Bob passed away on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at the Health Sciences Centre, at the age of 64 years.

Bob will be lovingly remembered by his wife Gail and daughter Lisa Thomson. Bob will be missed by his sisters, Vikki (Dick Beyak) and Eileen (Randy Dola); his brother Jeff Zaluski; his sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends. Bob was predeceased by his daughter Tara, parents, Elsie (Alice) and Alexander Zaluski.

Bob grew up in the North End where he was involved in the Boy Scouts, Lacrosse and Hockey. He worked for Bristol Aerospace, New Flyer and Boeing Canada where he retired.

The family would like to extend thanks to his medical teams and Christie Blackwell at Health Sciences Centre, and special thank you to family and friends for their support during this difficult time. Words cannot express how much we will miss him, nor how much we learned from him, nor how much we love him.

A celebration of his life will take place on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue (across from Brookside Cemetery). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation or the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
