Victoria; University of Saskatchewan, 1958; urology. Died Aug. 25, 2018, aged 87. Survived by his wife Greta, 5 children and 14 grandchildren. “[After completing his training], Len settled in Victoria at the invitation of doctors Hopkins and Duxbury to bring the modern practice of pediatric urology to Vancouver Island in 1967. He was the second fellowship-trained pediatric urologist to come to BC, and the first in Victoria. Len had a very full combined adult and pediatric urology practice in association with Dr. Bruce Piercy, and had a special interest in surgical management of erectile dysfunction. Leonard was well loved and respected by his urology group, residents and interns, and especially by his patients. He bore his final illness, metastatic esophageal cancer, with dignity, and in typical Len fashion chose the time and date of his passing, just after his and Greta's 61st wedding anniversary.”
