December 2, 1926 – December 27, 2018
It is with deep sorrow that the family of Leonard Beavis announces his passing on Thursday, December 27, 2018 in Invermere, BC at 92 years of age.
Leonard was born on December 2, 1926 in Winnipeg, MB. He worked for Eaton’s in Winnipeg for 30 years and then at the mill in Invermere until his retirement. Len was a gentleman, always kind and friendly and pleasant to talk to. He prided himself at retesting himself twice a year for his driver’s license. Len was always tinkering, loved woodworking and doing small engine repairs. He would never pass you by without extending a helping hand. Len loved to fish, hunt, travel and go back country hiking.
Len is survived by his sons Larry (Dorothy), Alfred (Gail) and Patrick (Jo-Anne), his daughters Kim (Glenn) and Miriam (Colin), many grandchildren and great-grandchildren across BC, AB and MB. Len was predeceased by Rita Beavis of Winnipeg and Maxime of Invermere.
Many thanks from our family to the close friends and neighbours who watched out for Len in his later years.
A service for Len will be held in Winnipeg at a later date. He will be interred with his mother and father. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in honour of Len may do so to the Red Cross or your charity of choice.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at www.mcphersonfh.com.
