It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Leon Lessard in G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital on November 18, 2014, after a noble battle with cancer.
Leon was a graduate of UBC and a Chartered Accountant. He moved his family to Quesnel to become a partner at the accounting firm Rigsby, Lee, Barr & Co. where he worked for nearly 40 years.
As a young adult, Leon was an accomplished member of the 4-H Club in the Fraser Valley. He was an avid reader and skilled wood craftsman. He also enjoyed the outdoors, particularly canoeing and fishing with friends and colleagues.
Leon is dearly missed by his daughters; Leah (Arthur), Angel (Joe), his grandsons; Sullivan Sartain, Porter Sartain, his sister Frances Stewart, brothers; Raymond (Carol), Paul, many nieces and nephews.
