Leo HERMARY

HERMARY Leo Leo Hermary was born on January 21, 1940 at home on the family farm in the River Bend area of Red Deer. Leo was #8 in a family that would grow to 10. Leo took all his schooling at the North Red Deer Catholic School, leaving in Grade 11 to go working. He was a truck driver, house mover, and factory worker until settling down in the oil industry, where he was a Jack of All Trades. If it needed to be done, he did it. On July 17th, 1978 he married Deloris. In 1986 they moved from the acreage at Haynes to the farm on Hwy #2. There Leo raised ducks, geese, rabbits, horses, pigeons, doves, peacocks, guinea hens and just whatever else he fancied. He also had a greenhouse and a large garden where he raised vegetables. Leo loved to read and would spend hours reading about natural remedies, animals, Alberta’s history and National Geographic or anything that he found interesting. When not working in the yard or reading, he could be found playing cards or watching Western movies. Leo loved to hunt and fish. In 1977 he won the Red Deer Fish & Game Big Buck trophy for Whitetail and throughout the years collected other trophy whitetail and antelopes. Leo is survived by his brothers Emil (Barbara), Albert (Audrey), and Edward (Carla) all of Red Deer, AB as well as brother Clarence (Avana) of San Carlos, California; sisters: Cecile (Rod) of Red Deer, Therese (Roy) of Rimbey, and Lucy of Camrose, as well as numerous extended family and friends.
