My cousin Richard and Leonard were truck driving buddies. Unfortunately Richard passed away three years ago. I was planning a memorial ride in his honour for this month and messaged Leonard to join me. I am so saddened to hear of his sudden passing. I will ride in honour of both of these men now. May they rest peacefully. My love and hugs to the entire Fitzgerald family.

Melanie Fyfe

Codi’s dad was the most welcoming man. From the first time I met him, he would tease Codi and had nothing but kind, encouraging words for her. His love for her was very evident. When I got brave enough to ride my motorcycle again, he spent the time to help fix my bike and ensure I had all my documents in order.
He will be much missed by everyone and the kindness that He and his wife Barbara showed everyone was passed down to all of theirs daughters.

Christine Smith

Leonard was full of life, joy and positivity. he didn’t take himself or life too seriously. He welcomed people by teasing and laughing, I’ll miss his spirit in this world.

Sandy Simmons

My condolences to Leonard’s family, his children and grandchildren.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Leonard’s passing. I’ve known him for years as he was my brother-in-law. One of my earliest memories is of him picking up my sister Barb in his convertible and getting to go for a ride. He was always happy to see anyone who walked in the door. I’ll miss his big greetings, laughter and his sense of humour. Rest in peace, Len.

Barry Bradley

Leonard and I moved from Smiths Falls, Ontario to St. Albert, Alberta, at different times during the month of July, 1969. Our first job, in the wild west, was for Wally’s Amusements. Although we never got together as often as we should have, when we did get together there was always loads of laughter and lots of reminiscing. Our prayers and condolences go out to all of Leonard’s family and friends.
