LOEWEN, Leslie John 1946-2020
Sadly, the family of Les Loewen announces his passing on October 30, 2020 at the Sechelt Hospital in Sechelt B. C.
Les was born May 20, 1946 in Winkler, Manitoba. He started his career at a young age helping in his Grandfather’s printing business and continued in the trade with Pembina Printing, Derksen Printers, and Triangle Commercial Printing. In 1979 Les went into business on his own; first with Leslie’s Stationery and Books and then Morden Commercial Printing. In 1999 Les and his wife, Iris, moved to Sechelt B.C. where he owned and operated Wilson Creek Photography until 2002.
Les loved sports - baseball, hockey, golf, curling, bowling. He also appreciated music and theatre. The 25 years Les spent working with The Company, an amateur theatre group in Morden, provided some of his fondest memories. Photography was both a profession and a hobby and he especially enjoyed capturing images of nature and children. Les’s personality was like a collage composed of intelligence, virtue, determination, humour, fairness, loyalty, and compassion.
Les will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Iris, sons Gary and Kevin, granddaughter Anais Loewen Young, mother Katherine, sisters Ginny (Ron Peters), Lyn (Steve Boswell), Cindy (Dave Neufeld), nieces, nephews, and friends. Les was predeceased by his father, Frank G. Loewen in 1974.
By request there will not be a service but a remembrance gathering will be held at a later date.
