After a 5 year battle with Dementia surrounded by family, it is with the heaviest of hearts we announce the passing of our father Leonard McLelland born February 21, 1934.

Leonard was a family man and will be dearly missed by his children Lynn MacDonald (Dan), Kelly McLelland (Joe), Leonard McLelland Jr. (Lorrie), Tim McLelland (Laura), Kristen Doneff (Ron) and his

many grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

In the United States Army, Leonard served as a Military Policeman in the Korean War. Leonard later became a boilermaker for Local 7, which he was very proud of.

Leonard after retirement, could be found in his garage, where he always welcomed people over for a beer.

Leonard loves were golf, darts and fishing, where he developed lifelong friendships.

Leonard was a member of Palmer Mason Lodge 372 A.F. & A.M. and Royal Canadian Legion Branch #71 Fort Erie. 

The family would like to thank the staff at Gilmore Lodge for the above excellent care and compassion they showed him while in their care.
