Leo was born March 26, 1930, on the family farm east of Willow Bunch in the Lakeview district. Farming was always a passionate part of his life, living in a rural community where neighbors were an extension of the family. In addition to farming, he was also a co-owner of the General Store in Harptree for about 5 years in the 1950s. Other employment Leo experienced during his working career included the UGG elevator agent in Harptree, municipal works in Coronach, and construction work for a winter in Medicine Hat. His hobbies usually revolved around rural activities such rodeos, thrashing demonstrations, vintage machinery shows and he always had his toe tapping to old time music, especially the fiddlers. Often he would bring out his harmonica and play some favourites for his grandchildren to share his enthusiasm for music. He also enjoyed spending time with his friends on coffee row; he had the gift of the gab and was quick with his wit. His sense of humor remained intact until his final days. He will be missed by family and friends. Celebration of Leo’s life took place Friday, November 2, 2018 at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church with Reverend Marilyn Leuty officiating. Interment took place in Lakeview Cemetery, Willow Bunch, SK. Donations in memory of Leo may be made to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
