LEIVO, Leo Evert

We would like to give thanks to God for the life of Leo Evert Leivo who passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital on Tuesday, 1st June 2010. He will be dearly missed by Rowena, his wife of 26 years. He also leaves to mourn his niece Grace Lynne (Gordon) and his nephew John (Marilyn). Leo was predeceased by his sister Carol Martin and his brother Veli Leivo. He is also survived by four great-nieces and a great nephew.

Leo was born in Finland and immigrated to Hearst, Ontario in 1930 and spent much of his life working in the Forrest industry in Hinton, Alberta. He and Rowena moved to South Surrey in 1985.

Leo was a man of faith who loved God. A funeral service of Thanksgiving was held on Tuesday, 8th June, 2010.

Donations instead of flowers may be sent to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation or All Saints Community Church (P.O. Box 75068 White Rock, B.C., V4B 5L3).

Rowena would like to thank neighbours and friends for their support; the nursing staff at Peace Arch Hospital for their wonderful care; Dr. Paton for his care and compassion; and Pastor Peter Klenner for his visits and support for Leo.
