Len was a Veteran and had served in the Canadian Army during WWII for four years. He had landed in France two days after D-Day. His passions were his fiddle and horses. Len and Hazel travelled throughout B.C. racing their ponies, always arriving home with a trophy or prize. He was known to his grandchildren as Grandpa Fiddles and always offered a tune and song. He will be missed dearly by all.
