Leon will be lovingly remembered by his sisters, Mary Kohler of Fraserwood, and Rose (Lawrence) Wyryha of Winnipeg, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Karol and Pauline Dudek; brothers, Frank and Mike, and John and Walter in infancy.
Leon was born in Camp Morton on June 25, 1930, and as a teenager moved to Meleb where he resided and farmed his entire life. He was very active in his church community and took great pride in his role with Meleb Park. Leon enjoyed hosting large family gatherings and in later years, attending functions at various family member's homes. There was always Ukrainian music playing in his home, and his door was always open for visits from family and friends. Leon will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
The family wishes to thank Dr. R. C. Patel and all the staff of Betel Home for their care and kindness shown to Leon over the years.
Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church, 113 7th Avenue, Gimli, with viewing prior to the service. Interment will follow at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Cemetery in Meleb, Manitoba.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Leon may be made to Betel Home or St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church.
