September 17, 1949 - September 20, 2020

After a short but hard fought battle we lost a good man. Len passed away peacefully at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, with Gail by his side.
Len will be missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Gail Ramsay, sister Norma Lotecki, brother-in-law Tom, nephew Ryan, nieces, Heather (Erik, Oliver and Sarah) and Shannon (Jacob and Julia). He will also be fondly remembered by Gail's daughter Kim (Mark, Jackson and Jaime) and his dear friend Ed.
Len was raised in Beausejour, Manitoba and spent his early adulthood there. Later work took him to various places in Canada and Ontario became his home.
Len and Gail shared a love of travel and took many trips together. Their love of Italy took them there four times. Many winters were spent in warmer climates. There were six trips to Dominican Republic where they made many wonderful friends. We are blessed to be amongst the few allowed past his tough guy facade and see his soft side.
Len was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Julia Wilgosh.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Really enjoyed a few years of high school sitting next to Len. Always a good laugh happening. He always wore a courderoy sports jacket..very stylish guy. Took me for a ride on his "chopper" after school one day...scared the crap out of me but it was quite the experience. He nicknamed me "Baby Kozak" because I was the young kid in our band but I was ok with that. Lots of good memories from a long time ago. - Posted by: Bob Kozak (High school friend and former band member...) on: Sep 26, 2020

  • Len was truly a good man as well as a good friend. I have many fond memories of growing up in Beausejour and going fishing with Len, his Dad and his Uncle Anton. In later years we spent hours rehashing world problems after an oil change and then draining a bottle of Seagrams VO. Even though we chose vastly different livelihoods I believe we maintained mutual respect right until the end. Rest in Peace my friend. Barry. - Posted by: Barry Frailick (Close Friend) on: Sep 26, 2020
