Leonard TSCHRITTER

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Leonard Tschritter. He slipped away peacefully at the Kelowna General Hospital on Friday, March 22, 2013 at the age of 80 years. Len is survived by his four sons Kerry (Patsy and daughter Veda); Kelly (Marianne and son Troy) of Leduc, Ab.; Tim (Carole) and Tracy of Kelowna, BC; two brothers Victor (Betty) of Osoyoos, BC; and Paul of Keremeos, BC as well as one sister-in-law Elsie also of Keremeos and nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Bernhard and Adela and two brothers Herb and Walter. Len touched many of our lives in his own special way. Those who knew him will remember his bright smile, keen sense of humor and his passion for a good game of crib. He enjoyed time spent with friends at coffee row and any occasion at all to have his boys nearby.
