We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Leo Clive Saroop on January 8, 2022 at the age of 86.
Leo will be lovingly remembered by his wonderful wife, Georgina of 65 years, his son, E. Brian, daughter, Arlene and grand-daughter, Victoria. We would like to thank all of our friends / families in Canada and in Trinidad & Tobago for their comfort, support and prayers.
Leo is predeceased by his mother, Rhoda, his sister, Myrtle and his beautiful grand-daughter, Vanessa.
His university education led him to teaching (B.Ed. & B.A.) for 40 years in Alberta. He was well respected by his peers and students. Dad’s love for his family was unconditional and this is something we will cherish from his character forever. His kindness and generosity will be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
A special thanks to the ALS Society in Edmonton who held our hands, step by step, through this terrible disease with love, care and support all of the time. (In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to ALS Society of Alberta – memorial section)
Thank you to the wonderful staff at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital for caring for Dad 24 hours a day with compassion till the very end.
Heartfelt thanks to our earthly “angel” Virginia from Home care (Bayshore) who brought sunshine, love, and positivity into our home while providing care for Dad daily.
Due to COVID restrictions, a private family service will be held at Serenity Funeral Home, January 14, 2022.
“If we never meet this side of heaven, I will meet you on that beautiful shore…”
We love you Dad.
