December 21,1942 – September 5,2018
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden passing of our father, brother, grandpa, great grandpa, Leonard Bond on September 5, 2018.
Len was born in Cranbrook, BC on December 21, 1942. He was the third eldest to Edith and Leonard Bond Sr. He was predeceased by his wife Lynn (Evelynn) and more recently his second wife Jean, his mother Edith and father (Herbert) Leonard Sr. and oldest sibling Doris. He is survived by his siblings; Allan, Esther, Marvin, Dallas, and Dennis, and many nieces and nephews.
Len was a devoted and beloved father of three; Dixie (Bob), Fred (Sheila) and Denise (Butch), step-daughter Lorianne (Paul); 12 grandchildren; Clayton (Courtnay), Gaston (Kathryn), Lindsay, Allison (Nathan), Sonya (Jonathan), Samantha (Jesse), Daylene, Lacey, Destiny, Alyssa, Bailey and Kent; and 8 great grandchildren; Kash, Kaprice, Ryder, Lillyanna, Jackson, Brody, Christoper and Emberly.
Len lived his whole life in Canal Flats, BC. He was a logger in the early years then went on to work at the sawmill as a Heavy Duty Mechanic until he retired. Over the years Len was involved in almost all of the community events and activities; whether it was organizing a fundraising event or being on the board of the Loins Clubs. His most recent favorite activity was lawn mower races! If you were in need of a « thing a ma jig » or a « doohicky » everyone knew to check with Len because he either probably had one or could make one.
Len loved the outdoors, especially the quadding and camping trips with friends. Len had an appreciation for Canal Flats like no other; he will be dearly missed by all.
