Leo will be missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews, brothers/sisters-in-law, step-brothers and friends.
Leo was born in Timmins, worked as a gold miner throughout his life and throughout the Timmins area and Northern BC. Nicknamed Bear for his strength. He was a social butterfly, spent many hours having coffee with old friends and family.
At Dad's request, he was cremated. The family invites friends and family to join us on August 3, 2019 at 12:00pm at the Connaught Community Centre for a meal and to share stories and memories of our father. TOGETHER AGAIN!
