JOHN LEONARD “Len”
Passed away peacefully on June 9, 2013 at the Ottawa General Hospital.
Formerly of Almonte, at age 83.
Beloved husband of Norma for 50 years. Survived by his son Doug Sally and granddaughter Lauren Sally. Sibling to Frances Shane (the late Arnold), Helen Grace, and Madeline Jordan (Lawrence). Will be fondly remembered by numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Son of the late John F. and Mary. Pre-deceased by his brothers Jim, Hugh, Gerald and survived by his sister-in-law Kaye. Len retired from the Ontario Department of Highways and that is when his life truly began. His interests in Agriculture, Finances and Music arose to the forefront of his life. He was the general manager for twelve years of the Ottawa Winter Fair while simultaneously owning a herd of championship cattle. Combining his former work history with his retirement, he successfully supervised and taught at an international tax corporation. Finally he was the founding President of the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship.
