It is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Lionel, while visiting his daughter in Calgary.
Dear father of Brent and Kelly (Carlos Plata). Proud and adoring Gramps of Ryan, Kara, Sammy, and Adriana. Brother of Lois (Gary Hudson) and Cathy (Mike Halliwushka). Predeceased by his brother Arnold (Shirley). He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
Lionel was a well known, hardworking man, specializing in heating repair and oil delivery for many years. He loved to spend time with his kids, especially helping with their steers in the 4-H club. Being outside, cutting grass, planting flowers, gardening, being with his horses, or sitting around shooting the breeze, were some of his favourite times. Lionel was always up for having fun or playing tricks on his friends and had an excellent sense of humour. He will be fondly remembered.
