We Remember


On November 26, 2019, Leif passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side after a courageous 5-year battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Nancy; daughter Lavonna Erickson; and son Patrick (Candice) and their daughter Madelynn. He is also survived by his 3 sisters and 4 brothers.

The family and Leif would like to thank Dr. Khoo, the nurses, and the staff at the cancer center for all their exceptional care and attention that we all received these past years. THANK YOU!

A private family interment will be held and will be followed by a celebration of Leif’s life later this spring (date and time to be announced). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Centre for the Southern Interior, www.bccancer.bc.ca.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him trying to help get my truck started when I was there. Always had a good sense of humour and that will stay with me.

    Nancy, Lavonna, Patrick and family, my sincere condolences on your loss. I was saddened to read this. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Leif was his energy and smile. He was a good solid guy, wore his heart on his sleeve and family came first to him. It has been quite a few years since I have seen Leif but I will always fondly remember my interactions with him.
