We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Mourning Glory Funeral Services
It is with profound heartbreak and sadness that we announce the passing of Les Roseveare on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at St. Paul’s Hospital. Although our hearts are shattered, we are comforted in knowing that Les is now free of all his pain from his 8 ½ year battle with metastasized renal cell carcinoma. Les is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Arlene (Neis); his adoring children, son Taylour (Viktoria), daughter Morgan (Brandon), daughter Bryton; his grandchildren Cedric and George - whom he cherished with all of his heart; brothers John (Corrine), Jim (Carol) and Bill and Linda, brother-in-law Dave, mother-in-law Hilda Neis, brother-in-law Gordon (Lynne) and sister-in-law Audrey (Darrell); as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Les was predeceased by his mother, Nan, and father, John, sister Adele and father-in-law, George Neis. Les was born on June 22, 1953 in Deloraine, MB. He grew up on the family farm near Kenton, MB, and was always very close to his roots (You can never take the farm out of the boy!). At a young age, Les began his life long career in the HVAC trade becoming a Journeyman in 1979. Les was passionate about his career and lived by the motto of “There is only one way to do something and that is the right way.” Anyone who has had the privilege to work alongside him can attest to him being a Legend in the industry. Les’ true love in life was his family. Being a husband, father and grandpa was the light of his life and centre of his existence. Les’ other love was hockey, which he spent many years coaching, mentoring, playing and rooting for his team - Winnipeg Jets (Go Jets!). Les was a kind, loving and generous man - an unfailing support to his family and friends, whose good sense of humour and easy-going nature endeared him to everyone he met. The family would like to thank Home Care and Prairie Hospice for their unwavering support during this journey, as well as the Palliative Care team at St. Paul’s Hospital; Dr. Viv Walker, Dr. Mark Fenske, Dr. Karen Mohr, Dr. David Woloschuk, our absolute angels on earth - the nurses, the social worker and music therapists. Words could never express our gratitude for the care, love and kindness shown to Les and to our family over the last 3 ½ months during the final journey of Les’ courageous battle. An interment service will follow at later date. As per Les’ wishes, there will be a celebration of life in the summer of 2022, where a beer or scotch can be raised, and good memories and laughs can be shared between those who knew and loved him. In lieu of flowers, donations in Les’ memory can be made to the St. Paul’s Palliative Care Unit. Arrangements in care of Aimé Laventure – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
