Leslie Donald Theodore Will
It is with great sadness that we announce that our dad, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away peacefully on September 11, 2012 at the age of 86. He was born on August 8, 1926 in New Osgoode, Saskatchewan. He was predeceased by our mom and grandmother Myrtle (nee Sutherland) on January 13, 1999. They were married on December 1, 1948. He was also predeceased by his granddaughter Nicole; parents Emma (nee Kenny) and Thedford Will; brothers Roy, Lawrence and Robert and; sisters Elma and Edith. Our dad, grandfather and great-grandfather will be dearly missed and remembered by his sons and their wives Dennis (Marie-Jeanne), Alvin (Ramona), Keith (Marcia) and Roland; grandchildren Dominique (Jean Marc), Chantal (Nic), Kelly, Angie, Kim, Nathan and Amy; as well as great-grandchildren Zoé, Ilanne, Isabelle, Charisse, Chabrie, the soon to be newest members of the family Mia and Cloé; as well as many nieces and nephews. Donald and our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother farmed and worked in New Osgoode and the Tisdale area before they moved to Vernon BC. Of the many gifts a parent can give their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and the ones we value the most are a strong sense of family, strong human values, positive self-esteem, as well as an appreciation of and love for our fellow human beings. Our parents and their values will be part of us all of our lives. Donald is to be cremated. A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at the Chapel of Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services (2980 Smith Drive, Armstrong, BC). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
