Leo Joseph Sanche

February 10, 1931 - December 8, 2015


On Tuesday evening, we lost an amazing father, papa, brother, uncle and friend.

Leo was born in Marceline, Saskatchewan and grew up in Kimberley where he met the love of his life Mary DeBoer.  They wed on January 29, 1955 and settled in Burnaby to raise their family.

Leo enjoyed a good football or hockey game as well as sharing a beer with family and friends.  Leo was also an incredible gardener and could grow anything, anywhere.

Leo was predeceased by his loving wife Mary, his sisters; Irene, Muriel and Alma.  He is survived by his children; Dale (Kathie), Suzette, Faron, Rick (Kim), Dawn (Al) and Ashley (Kelly), 8 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, sisters Lillian and Annette, brothers Gabe (Donna), Ray (Linda), Dale (Gayle) and many nieces and nephews.

A special thanks to Leo’s grandchildren M.J. and Josh for their tireless help looking after their Papa.

A celebration of Leo’s life will be held in the spring of 2016,  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary Loan Cupboard, Box 34, Kimberley, BC  V1A 2Y5.
