Passed away at the age of 54, shortly after noon on Wednesday August 31, 2022 with family and friends by his side at Riverview Palliative Care Unit.
Lee is survived by his mother Carole and father Leopold (Leo), as well as aunts, uncles and cousins. Lee will be missed by so many friends and family.
He was a gentle giant with a heart of gold, but could not beat the terrible cancer that ravaged his body. Lee was a Jack of All Trades, but he excelled at Information Technology at Southern Health, where he was employed for the last 15 years or so.
Thank you to the staff on the 3rd floor at Riverview for their great care and compassion.
A service for Lee will be held at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home on Thursday, September 22 at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Foundation.

  • I am incredibly saddened by your passing Lee. It has been a privilege knowing you the past 25 years. I miss your humour and wit. I remember when we both began at what was then Systemhouse - about a week apart on start dates. But what I remember better was when we all socialized after work. Those were some of the best times. I know you will be missed by all. Farewell my friend. - Posted by: Tom Turner (Former co-worker, friend) on: Sep 10, 2022
