Leonard Joseph Krulicki, loving husband, Dad, and friend passed away on July 3, 2021, from undiagnosed CMML and AML at the age of 61. As per his wishes, there will be no service. Our ashes will be scattered together at a later date by our children.
He will be missed by his wife Shannon of 30 years; daughter Aneliese; son Zachary (Kallie); brothers: Wally (Susan) Braeden, Alex; Brian (Juliet) Sara, Bethany, Micah; Kenny; Barry; and close friends he considered family.
A true "Northend Boy" Leonard loved where he lived. He enjoyed raising his family in a neighbourhood that was in close proximity to his childhood roots. Being the oldest of five boys, raised by a single working mother, life was not easy. It was at an early age where a strong sense of duty to family was instilled in him. This was evident in the many years he cared for his late Mom, Flo; and the manner in which he loved and provided for his family.
A Painter by trade Leonard forged many lasting friendships while in Autobody, at Bristol, in his twenty-plus years running the Paintshop at Franklin, and lastly as a Service Branch Paint Technician at HMFT (Howard Martin Fluid Technologies). He was energized by hard work and was a dedicated employee. He took great pride in his work and every job tackled was done to the best of his ability.
Our family's journey through the Health Care System was not an easy one. We wish to thank and acknowledge: Dr. Mai Nguyen; and the Nurses at CancerCare and HSC (BMT Ward) whom Leonard referred to as his "Rockstars". We have a special appreciation for our family physician, Dr. Nene Rush, for her care, compassion, and grace.
Leonard's love was undeniable. He was simply a good man who gave the best of himself to his family and friends. A quiet man who enjoyed the simple things in life - good food, good music, and the company of good friends. So we ask that with a smile (and maybe a tear) you honour him by remembering him. In a lifetime - from work, homeschooling, dance recitals, Karate, Jets games, camping, car tinkering, home renos, or just plain sitting around - hold a favorite memory near. Laugh long and loudly - raise your glass and share a story of this kind, decent man that we were all fortunate enough to know and love. Leonard would appreciate that.
- "we’ll see you soon, Dad"
- "All my love Leo, in this life and the next"
