Leonard (Len) Albanese

January 12, 1931 - April 29, 2019


On Monday, April 29, 2019, Mr. Leonard (Len) Joseph Albanese passed away at Mariposa Gardens after a long illness surrounded by family at the age of 88 years.

Len will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife Elva; son Donald (Linda); daughter Gina; granddaughter Jackie (Delan); granddaughter Roslyn; grandson Trevor; grandson Justin; great-grandson Joey and former daughter-in-law Iona.

His true love job was always the rail road as a Conductor on the Pacific Great Eastern Railroad. Len had a well respected career in politics and was greatly known for his entrepreneurial skill with many businesses and sales.

There are great memories of his family trip to Italy to discover his Italian roots, countless fishing trips to many beautiful lakes in BC and a family trip across Canada and a recent trip to the Rockies and Revelstoke to visit his conductor roots.

Len was always active in his community and volunteered his time with Boy Scouts of Canada and was awarded the Kings Scout Award of Canada, the Lions club, and was a national vice president of the Social Credit Party of Canada

He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and was an altar boy in the Catholic church from age 6- 83 years old

He enjoyed gold panning, gardening, fishing, golfing, spending time with his family

In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Len’s name to Desert Valley Hospice Society

Special thanks to Dr. Robert Calder and the staff and caregivers at Mariposa Gardens for all the special kindness given to Len at the end of his life.

A memorial mass will be celebrated at 10:30 am, Friday May 10th, 2019 at St. Anne’s Catholic Church. Interment and committal will follow at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery. A reception in the church lower hall will follow the interment.
