After nearly a century of his life’s journey, our dear patriarch, passed peacefully onto his next adventure. Beloved son of the late Bessie and Arthur de Carle and predeceased by his loving wife Audrey (Choquette), son Peter Leonard (Dianne Lawlor), and grandson Sean. He will be greatly missed. Last of his de Carle generation, he is finally being reunited with his sisters Aileen (Booth), Margaret (Findlay), Vera (Malone), and brothers Lea and John ‘Jack’. He is survived by daughter Anne Katherine Elizabeth (Wayne Behm), son John Gilbert (Phyllis Bouchard), and daughter Nancy Mary Ellen (Kim Stewart). Grandpa will be greatly missed by his grandchildren; Sean’s wife Claudia Fehres, Ryan (Geneviève), Darren (Arleah), Stephanie (Amy), Mathew (Robyn), Elizabeth (Terry), Joseph (Laurence), Kelly (Jason), and Laurel. He will be fondly remembered by his great grandchildren, Mathias and Emma, Fynn and Presley, Daphnée, Mason and Maddie, Seamus, Riley and Keenan, and Chase. Len always put his family first. Dad loved playing cards, especially cribbage, golfing, dancing, swimming and drawing up plans for everything. He loved playing his trumpet and the time he spent playing in the GGFG band, his time with UCT and the Knockers Club. He loved travelling with our mom. They were typical Snow Birds who spent most of their winters in Florida at Blue Parrot Park and their summers at the family cottage in Luskville. Thank you to the staff at Symphony Kanata Senior Retirement Residence, Champlain LIHN Bayshore Palliative Care team for their kindness and care. There will be a private family service and then a memorial service for relatives and friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Dad has requested a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ottawa. On line condolences may be made at www.colefuneralservices.com.
