LEENDERT (LEN) J. FEELEUS
December 25, 1930 - May 4, 2021
Dad is survived by his children, Arnold (Leslie), Geraldine (Clarence) Westervelt, Pete (Darlene), Gary (Denise), Nancy (Dwight) Dilts, and Wayne (Tonia). Grandpa was blessed with 17 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Also survived by two sisters, Edith Wassenaar and Laura Feeleus-Fooks.
Dad was born the fourth of six children on Christmas Day 1930 in Lisse, The Netherlands. On April 1, 1952, Dad immigrated to Canada with his parents and two younger siblings. Dad was "Jack of all trades" from the day he entered Canada until the week of his passing. Dad was not afraid to tackle anything with his optimism, enthusiasm, and very ambitious work ethic.
In the eyes of his family his greatest accomplishment was when he publicly professed his faith in Jesus at Covenant Christian Reformed Church on January 9, 2005. His church family was very important to him. After retiring in 1995 he continued to live life to the fullest, including travelling, building, gardening and thoroughly enjoying his visits with family and friends. Mom and Dad were married on April 6, 1956. In later years, Dad faithfully cared for Mom until the time of her passing in December 2019.
A private family interment will be held. A Memorial Service will take place Wednesday, May 12 which will be livestreamed at 2:00 p.m. on the Covenant church YouTube page, available by clicking "Watch Online" from covenantcrc.ca.

the work of your hands." Deut. 2:7a

Condolences & Memories (10 entries)
We really appreciated the memorial service and remembering who Len Feeleus was. I have fond memories of time spent at the Feeleus home and value those friendships which were built in the past and continue today. Len had a strong work ethic and a keen mind for business. Yet as stated in his obituary, what mattered most in his life was being brought to Christ later in life. To God be the glory.

Condolences to the Feeleus family. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Len for the first time this past August at the Wysocki/Feeleus wedding. My Dutch heritage and family had many interactions with the Feeleus boys. Talking with Len at the wedding was like talking to my Opa all over again, same mannerisms, kindness and interest in people. We talked about motorcycle racing, the love of machine shops, scrap salvage, auto wrecking, etc. I miss them both!! Take care Feeleus family.

My fondest memories were of Christmas holidays. When we would get together at your house and the ski-do rides were mandatory weather you brought you suit or not. I’ll always remember uncle Lenard's smile and kindness. Rest In Peace uncle - Posted by: Kevin Feeleus (Nephew) on: May 12, 2021
So sad to hear of your father's brief illness and passing, and my deepest sympathy to the family. I will forever remember his kindness and witty humor, and I will miss him at family gatherings. Always a smile on his face and an interesting story to tell, he was truly interested in the people that he loved and cared for. Rest well Ome Leen. - Posted by: Marianne Feeleus (Niece) on: May 10, 2021

Geraldine, Clarence and families, my deepest sympathies to all of you at this difficult time. Geraldine, I always enjoyed chatting with your dad at your family gatherings.

Rest in peace Mr. Feeleus. - Posted by: Bev McNamara (Friend) on: May 10, 2021
