(age 76 years)
Dad was born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. He passed away surrounded by family following a brief battle with lung cancer. Dad farmed all his life in the Daylesford area. He was also well known for his purebred Charolais cattle. He was one of the first breeders to import the big white cattle from France. Dad was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to hunt all big game. For the past 20 years Dad was a Walleye Tournament angler having won the prestigious Nipawin Premier's Cup in 2000 and 3rd place in the Vanity Cup in 2011 with his lifelong partner, Mom. Dad loved his grandchildren and all the local kids who called him 'Grandpa Les'. Many of these kids learned to hunt and fish because of Dad's passion and patience. During his time as caretaker of the skating rink, all kids were given the opportunity to practice their skating and hockey skills. He was never too busy to tie a pair of skates or pass along some encouragement or criticism where deserved. Les is survived by his wife of almost 51 years Ann (nee Slater), Gwen (Brad) Lancaster and son Taylor; Don (Charlene) and twin boys Parker and Porter; Greg and son Jacob; Darin (Karina) and daughter Madyson and son Nathan; and Jason (Nicole) and sons Joshtin and Breshton. Les was predeceased by his father Edwin in 1977, mother Emma in 2011 and brother Delbert in 1991. A Celebration of Life Service for Les will be held from St. Brieux Roman Catholic Church, St. Brieux, SK on Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Brenda Curtis officiating. Friends so wishing may make memorial contributions to the Canadian Cancer Society or to Chateau Providence Auxiliary.
