It is with much sadness the family of Lenard Ron Yalowega announce his passing. Born Sept. 28, 1958 Lenard passed away Aug. 7, 2015.
He is remembered by his father Ron Yalowega, his brother Dan Yalowega, nephew Tristan, niece Brittany, best friend Stewart Castle, Sandie and Arthur White, Auntie Fran, Uncle Ray, Auntie Gloria and many cousins.
Lenard was predeceased by his mother Marg Kohlen, his grandmother, Pauline Yalowega, grandpa, Mike Yalowega, grandma Lennie Stark, grandpa Alex Stark and his sister Brenda Lee Yalowega.
The first of three children born to Ron and Marg, Lenard attended Barlow Creek elementary school, QSS and Correlieu secondary school. He held the distinction of chess champion at QSS.
One of Lenard’s true pleasures was Ukrainian food, especially perogies followed by apple pie.
Many people were instrumental in Lenard’s life including his brother Dan who took Len every place he wanted to. His nephew Tristan was his right hand man. Len was very meticulous and Tristan had to arrange everything his way. His niece Brittany was his pride and joy.
Lenard’s hobbies included his lifelong passion for chess, Dungeons and Dragons, cards, computer time and books. Thanks to Stewart Castle, who started Len on a computer, he developed another passion that he used every day.
On behalf of the Yalowega family, a special thanks to each of Len’s home support workers. They did everything for him from writing documents to snacks, etc.
A warm thank you to Stewart Castle for the Celebration Of Life talk. And thanks to the Ladies Auxiliary at the Legion for a very nice tea.
