With heavy hearts we announce Leo’s passing on Nov 28th at Rest Haven Lodge where he battled dementia. He’s now at peace & fond memories of Leo’s generosity, wit, humor and love for his family & friends shall not be forgotten. Leo, pre-deceased by his mother, Natalie, sister, Lucy (Ed), brother, Alfred, & son, Jim, leaves behind his wife, Leona, daughter Benita, grand-daughter, Fawn, brothers Eugene, Edward (Ingrid), Richard (Bobbie) & sister-in-law Shirley as well as many other family members & friends.
Leo immigrated to Canada from Poland with his mother and 5 siblings in 1951. His hard working mannerism proved his cement curb company to be a huge success on the Saanich Peninsula & other areas of the Island. A heart-warming thank you goes to the staff at Rest Haven Lodge for their care & compassion provided to Leo and his family.
A service shall be held Friday Dec 5th 11am at Peace Lutheran Church, 2295 Weiler Ave in Sidney, BC (reception to follow). In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to Peace Lutheran Church or Rest Haven Lodge “in memory of Leo Friss”.
