Len passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 85 years of age with his family by his side. Born May 22, 1928 in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, he spent his early years enjoying life with family in Cedoux and the Weyburn area. A long-time pipefitter, Len belonged to the local UA 179 in Regina for 45 years. He enjoyed family gatherings with his children and grandchildren, and enjoyed trips to Las Vegas and Hawaii.
Predeceased by his mother, Edna Antoski, Len is survived and will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Ingrid; son Roy (Darla) Chinski and grandchildren Jessica (Ryan) and Tyler; and daughter Brenda (Jim) Huber and grandchildren Hayden, Madison and Brita.
The family would like to thank the staff at Palliative Care with a special thank you to Dr. Salgado and also Len's recently graduated granddaughter from Nursing, Jessica, for her extra care and attention. A private family service was held. Those so wishing to make donations in memory of Len may do so to the ALS Society of Saskatchewan, 90 C Cavendish Street, Regina, SK S4N 5G7.
