The family of the late Leonard (Len) Lemire is deeply saddened to announce his passing at the Cornwall Community hospital on January 2nd, 2022 at the age of 75 years old.
Len was born in Cornwall, Ontario on November 13th, 1946 to his late parents Florian Lemire and Gratia (Nee Martel). Len built his life with his loving wife and soul mate Pauline (Nee Perras) of 53 years. His working life was dedicated to Cornwall Police Department as a dispatcher in the early years and then as a clerk in the records department. He retired in 1999.
Len is survived by his son Guy Lemire (Amanda) of Cornwall, daughter Chantal Hartle (Tim) of Cornwall. He is also survived by his beloved brothers and sisters, Bernie (Jessie), Jean-Paul (Anne), Paulette (Gene), Gerry (Darquise) and late brothers and sister; Herbie (Shirley), Emile, Marcel (Jeanette) and Claudette (Felice). He will forever be sadly missed by his grandchildren who he loved and was adored by: Taylor, Cameron, Veronica, Gratia, Kiersten and one great grandson Owen. His loss will be mourned by many nieces and nephews and his godchildren, Nancy, Roxanne and Joanne. He will also be missed by his furry dog Bella whom he cherished.
In his spare time Len enjoyed flowers and gardening and used spare time building a coin collection and dedicated countless hours in genealogy endeavours. Lens first passion was caring for his family, his siblings and others, always making sure things were in order and beyond. It was a truly fulfilled life and his physical presence in ours will be forever missed.
Len's family would like to acknowledge some outstanding medical caregivers throughout the years. Dr. Roger Tremblay, Dr. DeYoung and Dr. Arab, the staff at the Cornwall Community Hospital, the angels at Bayshore Home Health, Paramed Home Health Care and Cornwall Paramedic Services. Your dedication, professionalism and love were a fixture in Len's life.
A memorial celebration of life will take place at a later date. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Basic Funerals and Cremation Choices.
Donations to the Cornwall Hospice would be appreciated by his family.
