LESLIE WILLIAM JOHN MOROZ
June 12, 1944 - January 24, 2023
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved dad and papa at the age of 78. Leslie grew up in Transcona where his parents owned the restaurant at the corner of Day St. and Regent Ave. At the age of 22 he married the love of his life Suzzanne.
Leslie worked for Canadian National Railway for 41 years and retired in 2002.
He loved fishing, hunting, and spending time with his grandchildren. He enjoyed catching many walleye master anglers, tournament fishing and being part of Lund Pro Staff.
One of his fondest memories was moose hunting in the Kettle Hills.
Leslie was someone you could call, and he was always there when you needed him. He had a heart of gold. He spent many weekends teaching his grandson how to fix anything with a motor or taking his granddaughter shopping and out for dinner dates. Papa lived his life saying there is no such thing as can’t. That if someone else can do it you can do it.
Leslie is survived by his daughter’s Tammy and Tobi (Alan), grandchildren Mackenzie and Liberty.
Predeceased by his parents (John and Pauline), sister (Ruth), wife (Suzzanne) and his beloved dog Jackie.
In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of his life will be held on February 20, 2023, at 2pm at East End Community Club (517 Pandora Avenue East).
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Cancer Care Manitoba in Leslie’s memory.
