ANDERSON, Lennart - With broken hearts we must say goodbye to our beloved Lennart, our amazing husband and father. Len was born in Dauphin, Manitoba to Anders Sigfrid Anderson and Astrid Carolina Jonsson.
After graduating for City Park Collegiate in Saskatoon, Len and his brother Gordon travelled through Europe and were instrumental in re-establishing a bond with the family in Sweden.
He was very proud of his heritage and established some of the Swedish customs in our home through traditional music and food.
Predeceased by his parents, son Anders Gregory, nephew Michael Velvick, brother Gordon (Lilian) and sister Joan Brownridge. He will be sorely missed by Orpha, his loving wife of 62 years, his adoring daughters Andrea, Cara and Melanie, sister Elsie (Tony Velvick), brother Brian (Anne Marie) as well as extended family in Sweden and western Canada.
Sincere thanks to the outstanding nursing staff in 2 West at Ajax Pickering Hospital. Floral tributes gratefully declined. Raw peanuts in the shell, or any nuts in the shell would be welcome!
Funeral services will be held Saturday December 15th at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 119 Church Street South in Ajax. Viewing from 10 a.m. at the church. Service at 11, interment at Erskine Cemetery and reception to follow at the church
