Lionel was a long standing contractor in Nanaimo and built many apartment buildings, including the first concrete high rise, the Royal Vista.
Special thanks to Casey & Linda for their friendship. Lionel will always be in our hearts and we will sincerely miss him. By his request there will be no service.
