A quiet man, Len loved to work out of doors either in his garden, flower beds or creating wonderful wood projects. A kind and giving man, he loved to share his garden’s bounty and especially loved being a “grandpa” to the neighbourhood children. He began working cutting pulp and farming and then continued for many years as a carpenter working on many houses in the Beausejour area. He retired from the Town of Beausejour, where as a town employee he took pride in the upkeep of the town.
A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, January 28 at 3:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour.
In lieu of flowers donations are kindly accepted to East Gate Lodge or to the Beausejour and District Hospital.
