Leo grew up in Saskatchewan and later moved to Alberta to work in the oil industry. Geraldine, on the other hand, spent her early years on a family farm in Leduc. The couple tied the knot on August 4, 1956, in Leduc.

Leo began his career working on oil rigs before transitioning to a tire shop in Leduc.

One of the highlights of Leo and Geraldine’s life was their cabin at Garner Lake, where they spent countless joyous years. Family gatherings, games, and visits were a cherished part of their time there. Leo also enjoyed playing jigsaw puzzles and entertaining seniors by playing the guitar and singing. Geraldine found solace in reading, baking, and supporting Leo’s musical endeavors.

Leo and Geraldine leave behind their daughters, Shelley (Ken) Alackson and Kim (Duane) Bounds, as well as four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. They are also survived by Leo’s sister, Nellie, and Geraldine’s brother, Rod, as well as several nieces and nephews.
