Memorable Manitobans: Arthur Vincent Munro (1922-1999)

Businessman.

Born at Westbourne, Manitoba on 1 October 1922, the third of four children born to Bert and Winnie Munro, he drove a transfer truck for Isaac Cohen in the winter and worked on the family farm in the summer. In 1948 he purchased a confectionary and billiard hall at Westbourne to which he added a coffee shop. To supplement his income he also trained as a barber. In 1957 he acquired a fertilizer dealership and started what would become Munro Farm Supplies. He sold his interest in the business in 1990 and retired. He died at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba on 12 March 1999 and was buried in the Westbourne Cemetery.
