October 9, 1936 – November 7, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with heartfelt sadness we announce that on November 7, 2022, Michael Leng passed away peacefully, at the age of 86. He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Shirley, his children, Denis and Wendy (Jeremiah), as well as his 2 grandchildren, Liam and Ellie, and his sister, Pam.
A Yorkshire lad, Mike was born in 1936 in Doncaster, England. After completing his National Service and a short stint with the Leeds Police, he escaped the UK weather and joined the Bermuda Police Service.
It was there that he met and married Shirley, his wife of 58 years. They moved to Vancouver in 1966 and 2 years later moved to the Yukon where Mike loved to hunt and fish.
Moving to Vernon in 1981, Mike took up the sport of golf. He was a member of the Vernon Golf and Country Club for over 30 years and made many friends there. Mike was known to enjoy a pint and a ‘wee dram’. He was a great poker and crib player, and loved a wager.
Those who knew Mike had many good laughs over his dry sense of humour. Looking past the crisp British exterior, people could see the kind and gentle soul who was our husband, dad and grandad. He will be greatly missed.
The family would like to thank Dr. Dave Arnold for his many years of care and support.
A celebration of Mike’s life will take place at a later date.
