Condolences & Memories (8 entries)
I am looking for Beverly, Leo's ex-wife. Thank you kindly - Posted by: Heather Hopkins (Doing genealogy) on: Nov 04, 2019
I never met Leo but over the years I have become great friends with his son Trev. One thing that I always noticed is then whenever Leo was mentioned Trev absolutely lit up. You could really see the amazing connection between Trev and his dad. Yesterday I saw it with his brother Kevin too at the interment. It's always made me hope that my boys will light up like that when my name is mentioned by their friends in about 30 years or so. All the best - Posted by: Gerry Cantin (Friend of Son Trevor) on: Sep 20, 2014
I had the pleasure to have known Leo before and after his retirement with the gov't. When he called me I would say "Hi Leo, how's it going" when seeing his number on call display without him saying anything or his message on my voice mail will be Hi Rosie Dozy. RIP Leo. My sincere sympathy goes out to his family. - Posted by: Rose Wowryk (friend) on: Sep 15, 2014
My sincere sympathy to close friends and family. Leo was such a kind and caring man. I remember our fun times in our younger years with fondness. Leo always made Geo and I smile. Good times:) - Posted by: Bev Sigurdson (Friend) on: Sep 14, 2014
One of my most vivid memories of Leo was at Riverview C.C. He and my dad were shoveling a massive amount of snow, while it continued to fall from the sky. Leo was wearing his denim jacket with the sheepskin collar, and my dad was sporting his tweed hat. They were both skating with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths, yelling at us to do our drills, while shoveling As I recall it, I can still smell the smoke in the cold air.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin and Trevor and their families. Have known the boys since they were kids and have watched them grow to become fine men. I'm sure Leo was very proud of you both. - Posted by: Orv & Linda (Gerbrandt) Malcomson (Friend) on: Sep 14, 2014
Condolences to the entire family - Posted by: Al Drohomereski (cousin) on: Sep 14, 2014
My condolences to the Drohomereski family. Mr. Drohomereski spent hours trying to teach me DOS, on his brand new 1989 computer. I never understood the codes, the commands, he was a VERY patient and caring man. Still, I was glad when Windows came out! - Posted by: Cynthia Jones (Neighbour) on: Sep 13, 2014
