LEENDERT MOERLAND (published on October 06, 2008)

LEENDERT MOERLAND Peacefully, with family at his side Leendert Leopold Moerland passed away at the age of 79. He is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years, Helen; his children, Jake, Lenora and Teresa (Raymond) and his grandchildren, Andrew, Trevor, Mason and Majestic. Leo was predeceased by his parents, Jacobus and Lena Moerland. Also left to mourn his passing is sister, Mar Keijzer and brother-in-law Joop; their family Ron (Sonja), Paul (Margreet), Marloes, Wouter, Jelle, Sanne and Jonathan; cousin, Leny Moerland, all of the Netherlands. Uit het oog was niet uit het hart: zijn warmte, gezelligheid en Rotterdams accent blijven altijd in onze herinnering. Zo ver weg was hij toch altijd dichtbij. Leo was born July 4, 1929 in Rotterdam. The Netherlands was his home until the completion of his military service in The Royal Dutch Marines. In 1953, he immigrated to Canada with good friend Peter Wansink. He married Helen Jane Macklin on December 3, 1960 and they lived and raised their family in Winnipeg. He worked in the automotive service industry until his retirement, during which time he established many life-long associations and friendships. As per Leo's request, cremation has taken place and a private celebration of his life will be held for family and close friends at a later date. We would like to thank all our family and friends for their condolences and words of support. The family appreciates the care and compassion shown by the doctors, nurses and support staff of the Grace General Hospital. Family respectfully declines flowers and asks that any donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of choice. Chapel Lawn 885 - 9715
