Leonard Sokolowski passed away on Thursday, May 13, 2021 surrounded by his loved ones. He was born to Audrey and John Sokolowski in Brandon, Manitoba on October 18, 1951. Len married Diane (nee O’Callaghan) and had two daughters: Tanya and Monica. Len was a jack of all trades and master tinkerer. After a long career at Canexus, he thoroughly enjoyed his retirement. He discovered scuba diving later in life and spent his last years travelling to tropical destinations so that he could pursue his passion for deep sea diving. Len had fond memories of his youth with his friends and siblings, playing down in the willows and learning to play guitar. As a young man he spent many summer weekends camping with his family. He loved to relax on the beach, cook and keep a watchful eye on the birds in the backyard. Len was a man of few words and was fastidious about his routines. He was meticulously tidy and a minimalist that enjoyed life’s simple pleasures. Len liked to portray himself as stoic, but his favorite days were spent with his grandkids by the pool. Len will be lovingly remembered by his wife Diane; his daughters, their husbands and his grandchildren: Tanya and Trevor McGill, Millicent, Henry and John; Monica Sokolowski and Milan Madhavji. Leonard is also survived by his brothers and sisters and their families. The family will cherish Leonard’s memory privately. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Len may be made to the Ronald McDonald House, 566 Bannantyne Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3A 0G7,

Diane, Gwenda and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Len’s passing. I have fond memories from work and time I spent outside of work with Len. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sad to hear about Leonard's sudden passing. I met him a couple of times through my sister and her husband Ted. He reminded me so much of my brother in law. I did not know he was a scuba diver, something near and dear to my heart when I was younger. My deep sympathy to Leonard's family including his brothers and sisters. Ted Elliott

Diane, Tanya, Monica and Family,
Scott and I are so very sorry to hear of Leonards passing! We have so many good memories, from us sitting in the shallow end of the swimming pool in lawn chairs "visiting" while Len gave Scott his "tutorial" on pool care, to work Xmas parties together, to spending time in Cuba learning to play "dice" We still play and always use the phrase "Sucko wouldn't pass three dice" He was a quiet man but had that twinkle in his eye that went with his dry sense of humor! We are thinking of you all at this difficult time and will miss him so Love Scott, Moe and Family
