1939 ~ 2013
Leslie Henry Weitzell reunited with his loving wife Fay on
Sunday, February 10th 2013.
It is with great sadness we
are saying goodbye to a
grandfather and an uncle.
He will be lovingly
deeply missed by his
daughter Carol (James),
and Melissa and 2 great
grandsons Nolan and Wyatte.
He is also survived by his niece Betty (Mario), Jack and Ken (Tammy) as well as several other family members. Les was predeceased by both his parents, Elizabeth and Henry, his wife of 51 yrs Fay and his eldest daughter Debbie, as well as his sister Doris. Les was born March 12, 1939 in
Vegreville, Alberta. He stayed in Edmonton working in a
grocery store and then as a milkman and married Fay
in August of 1958. In the late 1960’s, they moved to
Vancouver where he took a mining course and began his life long career in the world of open pit mining.
Once Fay had relapsed with cancer, Les retired and
they spent their time traveling across Canada and
spent numerous winters in Yuma, making many friends.
A celebration of Life will be held at 11 am on
Friday, February 15th at Valleyview Funeral Home,
165 Valleyview Rd with Rev. Gordon Fletcher officiating.
Coffee and fellowship to follow.
In lieu of flowers please donate to the Canadian Cancer
Society, 1633 Pandosy St Kelowna, BC V1Y 1P6.
