Leo Gervais

Leo took his final flight on April 30th, 2018. An educator in the Cowichan Valley and flying instructor in Victoria and Nanaimo, he was a life-member of the Duncan Flying Club. An avid reader, he was interested in everything, particularly in the people he met and their lives.

Born in Temiscaming, Quebec, he joined Canada Services College Royal Roads from 1956-58 where he met his soulmate, Valerie, with whom he spent the next 55 happy years. He was a kind, gentle soul, and a wonderful, loving father to three daughters.  Hockey, boating, flying and travelling were his passions. He visited many parts of the globe which included many air museums!

He is survived by his sister, Lola, (Cobden, Ontario), many nieces and nephews, his wife Valerie and their three daughters, Melissa (Dave), Monica, Heidi and his cat ‘Meeko’.
