Leonard LEWIS

LEWIS Leonard John Lewis passed away peacefully on June 3, 2005 on his own terms and in his own time at the age of 88. He joined his beloved wife, Rose, who predeceased him in 1999. He will be lovingly remembered by his sons, Wes (Coral) of Eckville, Randy (Amanda) of Regina, SK; his daughter, Ramona (Emil) of Victoria, B.C.; three grandsons, two grand-daughters, a great grand-daughter and a great-grandson. He is survived by 2 brothers, Frank and Jim, and 2 sisters, Eileen and Nina. Leonard was born in Swansea, Wales on October 11, 1916. He immigrated to Canada with his family at the age of 11. Leonard enlisted in the Canadian infantry in 1939 and served overseas until the war was over in 1945. He returned to Saskatchewan and married Rose Callele in 1949 where he farmed and started his family. After farming for 11 years in Saskatchewan, he moved his family to Stettler, Alberta for a brief period before settling in Red Deer. In Red Deer, he worked selling cars at Northwest Motors and selling agricultural equipment for John Deere and Case. Leonard, known for his brusque, straight-shooting manner, had a reputation for working hard on behalf of his customers and telling it like it is. For those who knew him best, they knew he had a passion for yard care and loved every one of his many cars over the years. Len was also a life Member of the Masonic Lodge, Grand Lodge of Saskatchewan. The family would like to thank Dr. Holmes and the Caregivers at Correct Care, where Leonard lived the last year and a half of his life, for their excellent care and kindness during that time. In keeping with his wishes, there will be no service. If desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Salvation Army.
