It is with great sadness that we, the family of Leonard Joseph Christmas announce his sudden passing on June 19, 2019 at 76 years of age. Born Sept. 11, 1942 in Membertou, he was the son of the late Victor and Isabelle (Marshall) Christmas.

Leonard was a hard working man. He opened the first video arcade in Membertou, picked blueberries in Maine and up until 2 years ago worked for Membertou Public Works. Leonard loved to travel, cycle and tending to his garden out Caribou Marsh. He was a great pool and shuffle board player but his real passion was music. He had a talent in singing, playing his guitar and harmonica. He had a great sense of humor, an infectious laugh and a smile that will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his daughter, Annette (Tim) and his sons, Victor, Austin (Rose) and Ian (Sandra). He will be missed by his brother Edward, 11 grandchildren, 9 great grand children and nieces and nephews.
