LESLIE VIGBALD STEVENSON
November 20, 1938 - August 17, 2021
Les passed away peacefully with his family by his side on August 17, 2021, at the age of 82 years.
He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Lynne; sons Brian (Jennifer) and Jason (Amanda); beloved granddaughters Lily and Kylie; sister Alda Tait as well as brother Freeman Stevenson (Claire).
Les was a longtime employee of MTS; after retirement, he and buddy, Elmer Broschuk, started Custom Wiring and installed many alarm systems. They were very proud to assist Lynne's nephews, Tom and Chris Oakley start up Oakley Alarms.
Les and Lynne were fortunate enough to spend their winters in Florida and summers on their boat on Lake of the Woods for many years.
He was a lifetime member of the Royal Manitoba Yacht Club and spent lots of happy years helping out in the yard. He was also a member of the West St. Paul Curling Club and curled for many years.
Les finally used up his nine lives. He had quite a few close calls over the years, but somehow managed to make it through. He raced motorcycles, then went on to race cars at Brooklyn Speedway. He spent many happy hours riding and fixing boats and snowmobiles, a passion he passed on to his sons. He made many great friends through these activities.
The family would like to thank the staff at Riverview Health Centre and Middlechurch Home. They also kindly request that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
As per Les' instructions, there will be no service at this time.
