Len was born in Mannville, AB and moved to Calgary at a young age. He worked for the City of Calgary for 35 years prior to his retirement in 2002. He was an avid reader, loved travelling and enjoyed spending time with his family who were very important to him. He will be deeply missed.

He is also survived by two brothers, Dale and Wayne, his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Tim and Karen Adams and his niece, Kelly Adams as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Memorial Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.

    I met Len when I worked at the Information Centre and very much enjoyed working with him. However, my last memory of Len was when I bumped into Len and Lena at Market Mall last year. They both were smiling the entire time as they spoke about how much they loved to spend time with their grandson. They were thrilled to be grandparents. My deepest condolences to Len’s family, I know he will be missed.
