We Remember

LEESON, Eugene Edward

October 6, 1941 — January 29, 2018

After a very long struggle with diabetes and complications with his heart, Eugene passed away suddenly on the evening of January 29th at the Kelowna General Hospital. Although Eugene struggled with his health for an extensive time, he always had a very special way of making everyone around him feel happy. He will be dearly missed by his loving partner, Wendy Davidson, who has cared for him so greatly for many years. He will also be forever missed by his family; his sister Donna Pochinko; his sister in law Gwen Leeson, his two children and their spouses Sherry and George, and Rodney and Melanie and of course his six loving grandchildren, Sarah and Dave, Mitchell, Taylor, Courtney and Steffany. Eugene will always hold a very special place in the hearts and memories of his family members and his many friends. Eugene is in a very special place now with lots of sugar and sweets, his very dear, predeceased wife, Loreen Leeson, his close brother, Wayne Leeson, and his parents, Victor and Reidun Leeson. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 3rd at 1:00 pm at the Christ Lutheran Church, 2091 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, Eugene’s family wishes that donations are made to the Canada Diabetes Association as well as the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

    I will miss my father dearly. My dad was not a man of many words, but the words he spoke meant something. He never judged, never harbored resentment, was very forgiving, compassionate, endearing, affectionate, and many more. I am extremely proud of him and how he held it together never showing the physical pain he suffered and protecting those he cared most about, around him. I will hold many specials memories of my father close to my heart and know his love will live on through his family and his very close and loving partner Wendy. Love you dad! xoxo
