DR. LEONARD ASHER EASTON June 14, 1941 - May 6, 2005 Peacefully on Friday, May 6, 2005, our Dad Leonard Easton, passed away after his battle with prostate cancer at the Riverview Health Centre at the age of 63. Leonard will be remembered by his daughter Leslie, her husband Michael, his son Jeffrey, his former wife Shirlee, uncles, aunts, cousins and countless friends. Dad was a caring father and those who knew him were aware that his family was his top priority - mastering his golf swing, a close second. Family trips to Clear Lake and several sites around North America, Jets and Bomber games, movies, mini-golf, and yes, his singing and guitar playing are all fond memories that we will cherish. His patients often described his as thorough. Those who endured the long waits in his waiting room were assured an eye exam from a compassionate, patient doctor who made sure their vision was as good as it could be. He would often add a few anecdotes for good measure. Dad was interested in more that just his patients vision. Dad loved to celebrate people and would often describe the interesting occupations and hobbies of his patients from all walks of life. Dad shared stories about all the people that he knew and generously gave compliments. Dad was an athlete. His greatest achievement was winning the Manitoba Curling Championship in 1969 and going to the Brier. During his youth he played goal for Sir John Franklin CC, and many days were filled with playing football with his good friends at Blossom Park. While growing up, Dad came to all of our sporting events. For a few years he acted as assistant coach for Jeff's soccer team, gladly fulfilling the post game responsibility of piling as many teammates into his car as possible, and taking us for ice cream. His last few months were made as comfortable as possible because of the incredibly caring and competent 3 East wing staff at Riverview. We are truly thankful for all the help and support they gave to Dad and to us. We thank his friends and family who supported and visited him while in the hospital, some who came from afar. They were a comfort to him and to us. We especially thank our Mom, Shirlee, who kindheartedly answered his call, and took care of Dad when he requested it, and even when he couldn't ask. Dad, we love you and miss you, we'll always keep you close to our hearts. Kay bye , Dad. Donations in Leonard's memory can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, R3E 0V9 (787-4177).
