It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Claude “Bunky” Leeks, beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at the age of 93 years.
Claude is survived by his daughters Sandra (Robert) Bielesch of Calgary and Wendy VanderWal of Taber and her children David (Sandie) VanderWal and Kristie (Scott) Bull, great granddaughter Alexa Bull. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law Leona Leeks, Kay Faulkner and Marge Sorenson as well as many nieces, nephews, “adopted” families and many many friends.
He was predeceased by his beloved wife Annie; son-in-law Mike VanderWal; brothers Fred (Phyllis), Bill and Ted; sisters Effie (Les) Punter and Betty (Harold) Rhodes.
Dad had many jobs over the years, all of them in the agriculture field, but what he loved was farming. He served on many boards and committees. Dad was a caring and generous man. He always had and gave whatever was needed, whether it was words, a helping hand or time. Dad loved his wife Annie, his children, grandchildren and great granddaughter, but he also loved a good slot machine, a good card game and a good joke or story.
As per Dad’s wishes, please remember him privately when you hear the laying down of a playing card, the chime of a slot machine or the phrase “Did you hear the one about......”. We love you and miss you Dad.
