LEONARD (LEN) REBECK
Date of Passing: May 25, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
LEONARD (LEN) REBECK
Dad was predeceased by his parents, Paul and Elizabeth; sisters, Marian and Victoria, brother Carl; beloved daughter Cheryl (John).
Forever loved and missed by his beautiful and devoted wife Lucille "Luch", of 63 years, daughters, Susan (Ernie), Sandi (Allan), Liana (Robert); grandchildren, Ryan (Kim), Jessica (Joshawa), Jestine (Andrew), Jordan, Chase (Brianne), Jenna-Rae (Chris), Julien (Sophie); great-grandchildren, Carson, James, Emma, Mya, Sophie; brother Doug (Fran); sister-in-law Ethel, and many friends and family.
Dad was an expert in the field of asphalt road paving and paved most of the highways and airports in Manitoba and Northern Ontario with Mulder Construction. After retirement Dad continued to do consultation work, going out of province to bid on million dollar asphalt plants and equipment. I worked alongside Dad for numerous summers and admired him for his strong work ethic and his long hours of dedication to get the job done perfectly. His sacrifice of working out of town during difficult conditions provided his family with a beautiful life.
Mom and Dad travelled to Hawaii, Mexico and Las Vegas often. Dad had a passion for hockey and played into his senior years. He coached his daughters in hockey at Kelvin and East St. Paul and won many city and provincial championships.
Dad enjoyed golfing at Transcona Golf Club and the simple things in life, like picking a ripe tomato from the garden or savouring one of Mom's freshly made dill pickles. Watching the birds, squirrels and bunnies in the yard brought him joy in his final years.
Dad treasured all his pets but especially his Rocky. Grandpa's eyes would sparkle with seeing pictures of his precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He had a special bond with Julien that death cannot change.
Cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of Dad is planned for a later date.
Family requests no visitors to the house at this time. Donations can be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society in lieu of flowers.
Rest In Peace Dad and
May God have Mercy on your Soul.
Arrangements entrusted to
Interlake Cremation & Memorial Services

Our deepest condolences to the family. - Posted by: Gordon & Valerie Klym & Family (Relatives to Sandi & Allan) on: Jun 03, 2020
So sorry to read of Lenny's passing. Condolences to Luch and family. I met Lenny fifty years ago at Mulder's. I use to hound him to get his paper work in. He was always so busy but would always accommodate the office. Lenny always had a way with words with that smirk on his face. - Posted by: Sharron Walesiak (co-worker Mulder Construction) on: Jun 03, 2020

Sorry for your loss Jestine - Posted by: Ken Hoglund (Friend) on: May 31, 2020
We were neighbors on Johnson Ave. Len always spoke his mind. That was good. Losing a parent or sibling is one of life’s darkest days. Lenny would only like his family to have sunshine and rainbows. Lenny Rest In Peace - Posted by: Donna Boutang (Neigbour at one time ) on: May 30, 2020
Hey Coach! One of the good guys! Coached our girls hockey team to many championships! Hope you're up there playing hockey with the best! RIP💐🏒 “V I C T O R Y that’s the Kelvin battle cry!” - Posted by: Lois Paley nee cook (Friend ) on: May 30, 2020
Luch,Susan, Sandi & Liana, I am so sorry to read of the passing of Lenny at this time. He was a good man who loved his "Luch " and his girls like very few husbands and fathers do. He was always so proud of everything that they did to make him happy, especially Luch's cooking, and the girls hockey which he loved. I have very fond memories of our time's together, from when our kids were babies to when they were grown and had children of their own. I am sorry that I don't live in Wpg. anymore, so that I could have been there for you at this sad time. Please know that I am thinking of you all, and pray that Lenny is resting in peace. ( YOUR WORK ON EARTH IS DONE "LENNY" ) - Posted by: Madeliene ( Sis ) McCrea (lifelong friend) on: May 30, 2020
We were next door neighbours and 38 years. Mr. Rebeck always had a soft spot for our children. He taught our son some of the finer points of golf. Garrett and "Mr. Wilson" shared a love for hockey and used to bet on the Jets games lol. Rest is peace Mr. Rebeck. - Posted by: Janis & Ashley (Neighbour) on: May 30, 2020
