Leo was predeceased by siblings Mabel Beaudoin (late Dona), Edmund Lascelle (Maddie), Mona McKerracher (late Bernard), Marion Dooley (late Merl), Josephine Schultz (late Ken) and Marilyn Watson (late Wayne). Remembered fondly by many nephews and nieces locally and spread across the country. Leo will be remembered for his love of music, singing and entertaining. He will be missed by those that got to know him from the many jams and sing-alongs he took part in, especially at White Lake and the Canadian Legion. Until his last days he was always interested in what was happening in the town's entertainment. Leo's final arrangements are entrusted to the Boyce Funeral Home Ltd., 138 Daniel Street North, Arnprior. Due to the current circumstances surrounding the pandemic, there will be no formal visitation and as per his wishes minimum of ceremony. Interment will take place at Arnprior Malloch Road Cemetery.
