He grew up in Victoria and started work in construction but soon followed the "call of the sea " and fished commercially on the Pacific West and the Ocean Rambler. Len leaves behind his loving wife of 40 years, Maureen, daughter Michelle (Walt), son Kevin (Michelle) and three cherished grandchildren: Kevin, Tyler and Jade. Also left to mourn his loss is his beloved sister, Linda McQuirter (Lee) of Ontario, two step grandchildren, Tyler and Sarah, extended family members and his loyal canine companion Mr. Darby.
