September 7, 1943 ~ February 1, 2017
Leonard passed away peacefully in the loving embrace of his family at the age of 73. He succumbed to deteriorating health in the comforting care of the medical staff at the University of Alberta Hospital.
Len was an electrical engineer for over 30 years at ATCO. He had a passion for trains, a keen curiosity, and could fix just about anything. For many years he was involved in his church, management of 2 senior homes, his community board, and APEGA. He was recognized by the University of Alberta department of Engineering for 15 years of service as Secretary/Treasurer of Camp 6 Iron Ring Warden.
He will forever be loved by his wife of almost 50 years Sonia, children Deanna (Michael), James (Sara), and Joanne (Shane), ten grandchildren, William, Mya, Christina, Brandon, Connor, Emitt, Matthew, Quincy, Joseph, and Milla, brother Michael (Sandi), and sisters June (Garry), Betty (Richard), and Darlene (Frank). He will always be fondly remembered by the people he touched in his life.
He will be reunited with his parents, Nic and Eva, brother Harry, and sister Bernice.
Len will be commemorated with a prayer service on Friday, February 10 at 7:00 p.m., and a funeral service Saturday, February 11 at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at St. John's Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 10951-107 Street, Edmonton.
