After a very long struggle with diabetes and complications with his heart, Eugene passed away suddenly on the evening of January 29 at the Kelowna General Hospital.
Although Eugene struggled with his health for an extensive time, he always had a very special way of making everyone around him feel happy. He will be dearly missed by his loving partner, Wendy Davidson, who has cared for him so greatly for many years.
He will also be forever missed by his family; his sister Donna Pochinko; his sister in law Gwen Leeson, his two children and their spouses Sherry and George, and Rodney and Melanie and of course his six loving grandchildren, Sarah and Dave, Mitchell, Taylor, Courtney and Steffany.
Eugene will always hold a very special place in the hearts and memories of his family members and his many friends.
Eugene is in a very special place now with lots of sugar and sweets, his very dear, predeceased wife, Loreen Leeson, his close brother, Wayne Leeson, and his parents, Victor and Reidun Leeson.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 3, at 1:00 pm at the Christ Lutheran Church, 2091 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC.
In lieu of flowers, Eugene’s family wishes that donations are made to the Canada Diabetes Association as well as the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
