Obituary

Leonard Louis Lazzari, at the age of 93, has passed peacefully into the arms of our Lord on
January 22, 2019 in Red Deer.
Len was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on January 13, 1926 to Ezechiele (Gino)Lazzari and
Angela Pierdona.
Leonard Spent his early childhood with relatives in Miane Italy until the age of 13 years old and
then returned to Canada. At the age of 17 he joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1944 and
served until the end of World War II. Len married Esther Genert shortly after. Len liked working
with his hands (mechanic), loved cars, hunting, and farming. His employment with Alberta
Transportation included grader operator, heavy duty diesel mechanic and advanced to shop
supervisor (with recognition). Inventions were part of his legacy, the one most notable was the
modifications to snow blades on snow plows. In his later years he settled in Sylvan Lake.
He loved seeing his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren when they came to visit.
His spirits were always picked up with their visits. He had a passion for building things, writing, and learning. Well into his 70’s, he developed competent computer skills and was using them almost daily to the end. He was an inspiration to his children and those who knew him. He always believed that “If
someone else can do it, then so can you. Learn how!” Though he appeared hard to some on the
outside, he was soft on the inside and easily brought to tears. He was a romantic.
Leonard is survived by by his wife of 73 years, Esther, children Jim (Carol) Lazzari, John
(Wanda) Lazzari, Jacqueline (Dwain) Hope, Joe (Marilyn) Lazzari, and Jason (Marlene) Lazzari.
He is survived also by 12 grandchildren and approximately 30 great grandchildren.
The Funeral Mass will be held at the Our Lady Of the Assumption Catholic Church, 5033 47a Avenue, Sylvan Lake, AB on January 29th, 2019 at 11:00am. After Mass, lunch will be served at the Sylvan Lake Legion Branch 212.
There will also be a prayer service held at the Church on Monday, January 28th,2019 at 7:00pm.
For those wishing to make a memorial contribution in Leonard’s name, in lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the Heart Function Clinic at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

Brenda (Bigelow) Kutanzi:
Auntie Esther & family,
My deepest sympathy to you and all the family. I will always remember Uncle Lens kindness, sense of humour and smile. He will always hold a special place in my heart.As hard as it is to see our loved ones go, I am sure there were a lot of family members waiting for him on the other side. I will always remember his kind words and comfort shown when you came to visit mom before she passed. God has called home another Angel on earth only to give you another Angel to watch over you from above. May the comfort of the spirit be with each of you. Know you are all in my prayers. I love you Auntie Esther and hope to talk to you soon.
Brenda and family
