Lovingly remembered and missed.


  1. Len, and Ruth are light itself. My brother Kevin and I were adopted as infants and shown a limitless unconditional love every day of our lives. I join many others whose souls they touched with love and kindness in thanking them for their grace and gratitude as they supported those less fortunate while asking nothing in return. Eternal love Dad.

  2. I had the pleasure of getting to know Len and Ruth at the hospital over the past few months. I work with the physio dept. We would help Len out of his bed and try to keep him moving. Although he was always very tired and short of breath, he remained very polite and had a beautiful smile. I always enjoyed coming to see him. The relationship between Len and Ruth was also a joy to witness. I am sorry to hear of his passing and send a big hug to Ruth.
