Jack “Irven” Leeti
1938-2019

On Wednesday February 13th, 2019, Mr. Jack Irven Leeti of Sylvan Lake, AB passed peacefully in the Red Deer Regional Hospital at the age of 80 years.
Irven will be lovingly remembered by his three step-sons; Jim (Janet), Larry (Carrie), and Robert (Melanie) and families. Irven also leaves to mourn one brother, Gordon (Johanna) Leeti. As well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Irven was predeceased by his wife Anna of 34 years, his parents, Elmer and Martha Leeti, sisters; Aileen Lyons and Helen Anderson.
Irven was born in Red Deer, AB to Elmer and Martha on October 10, 1938. He grew up on the family farm on the north end of Sylvan Lake. Irven farmed the land and raised cattle. He loved his yard and it always looked like a park. Later he planted a saskatoon orchard. In earlier years Iven loved to go in the truck and camper, to go out camping and fishing in the west country. Ice fishing was always one of his passions and always spent as much time as he could out on the ice. He belonged to the Sylvan Fish and Game until they shut down. He will be greatly missed and always loved.
A Celebration of Irven’s life will be held at the Chapel of the Sylvan Lake Funeral Home, 5019 47a Avenue, Sylvan Lake, AB on Thursday, February 21st,2019 at 2:00pm. A time of memories and refreshments will follow the service at the Sylvan Lake Legion Branch 212. For those who wish to make a memorial donation in Irven’s name, the family requests that they are made to the Stars Shock and Trauma Air Rescue Society.
The family would also like to thank the Doctors and Nurses on Unit 32 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital for their great care of Irven.

We send our condolences to all the family members with their loss. Aileen Lyons was Irven's big sister. Irvie as we like to call our uncle will always be remembered by me when myself, brother & sister use to spend summer holidays out on the farm and he took much pleasure in teasing us. It was all meant in good fun and we grew to know him better as we got older. As our family moved to B.C. we didn't always get to see one another but when the occasion arose we always went to visit Irvie at the farm as it held many special memories to our family.
Dick and Eleanor Snook:
Your stepdad was my age!
I lost my dad 27 years ago Feb 15.
He was a big influence on my life even if the influence
was unrecognized or resisted.
Regardless how old one is when you lose one your
parents it is still an important milestone.

We so enjoyed getting to know Irven. We called each other "neighbour." The most beautiful rocks in his rock pile found a new home in our rock garden on the hill behind our RV at Sunnyside. We shared a number of meals together in our home as well as at the SL Seniors luncheons on Wednesdays.
Irven had a gentle quiet nature that never complained. We enjoyed his friendship and will really miss him.
Ethel Wilde and family:
Our condolences and prayers are with the family
