Leon was a plumber and in 1990 he moved to Kerrobert, SK, where he met and married Carol Miller. He loved to work with wood, go fishing and enjoyed gardening. Leon was the gentlest of gentle men. He was filled with joy of life until he became ill in 2013. He fought hard to stay with us but wore out. He passed away peacefully in his sleep.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 28th, 2019, at St. Stephen's Catholic Church, Lacombe, at 1:00 p.m. with interment with his brother Leonard, in Primate, SK, in the spring.
