Leonard DARVILL

DARVILL, Leonard George. Better known to those who loved him most as Len, Dad, Gramps, and Uncle Len passed away peacefully on March 18th, 2012. Born in Brandon, Manitoba on May 21st, 1931 Len worked the better part of his life for Canadian Pacific Transportation. In 1965 he moved his family to the coast and settled in Vancouver. Predeceased by his wife Fay (July 1998) Len is survived by his daughter Kathy, his son Don, grandsons Peter and Steve (Kathleen) and great granddaughter Jillian. A devoted family man, Len was one of those guys that everyone took an instant liking to. He enjoyed a good hockey game and had a life long love of the game of cribbage actively competing in two different leagues. For the past decade Len traveled back to his home town of Brandon to spend the summer with his sister Joan and her husband, his best friend Murray. It was a trip he looked forward to making every year. He will be sadly missed by his entire family and his friends. A quiet man in life, his actions spoke volumes. His kindness and generosity were his trademark and for that he will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Dad. We love you. We will be having a Memorial Service on May 25th, 1:00pm in the chapel of First Memorial Funeral Services, 27555 – 31st Ave., Aldergrove.
