Born on May 7th, 1943, Lee went home to be with Jesus on April 8th, 2006 after a 1 Â½ yr. battle with cancer.
Lovingly remembered by his wife of close to 40 years, Margaret, his children Michael and Wendy (Jack), his brother Del (Flo) and many nieces and nephews.
He died at home surrounded by the love of his family.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lee moved to British Columbia with his family in 1975.
From 1979 through 2001, many came to know Lee as the “Popcorn Man” at Crescent Beach in South Surrey.
In early 2002, Lee and Marg moved to Fanny Bay on Vancouver Island.
Lee loved the Island, and it was there that he learned to play the banjo, spending many happy hours in jam sessions with friends.
He continued to sell his popcorn and sno-cones at festivals and fairs.
He was also Santa Claus to many kids over the last 8 years… and was one of the best.
Lee was a warm, funny and caring person and he will be sadly missed by many. Special thanks go to Dr. Doug Anderson.
A “Celebration of Lee’s Life” will be held on Sat., April 22nd at 2 P.M. at the Island Gospel Centre, which is located at 90 McColl Road, in Bowser, B.C.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Youth for Christ Comox Valley and designated to the Bowser Lighthouse Youth would be greatly appreciated.
The address is P.O. Box 3333, Courtenay, B.C. V9N 5N5.
Lee, you had a great life and you will forever be in our hearts.
