Leo (Ludwick) Terlinsky (Trylinski)
September 11, 1928 – June 17, 2023
It is with grateful and mournful hearts that we send our sweet Uncle Leo heavenward. Leo moved onto the Kingdom on June 17, 2023 from Pinecrest Home for the Aged, Kenora at the age of 94 years.
Leo was predeceased by his wife Anne (2013), parents and siblings. He leaves to mourn in his passing his friends and families of nephews, nieces and many greats who are too numerous to count.
Leo was born September 11, 1928 in RM Hanover, MB (near Steinbach) to Petro and Antonia (Chomyszyn) Trylinski. He was the last remaining child of 10 children who all predeceased him.
Leo had many life experiences across the Western provinces to BC, even as far as North to Church Hill, MB, east to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Leo met and Married Anne Boucha in 1964 at French Portage LOTW. Prior to his marriage Leo was employed by the LANDS and FORESTRY (MNR) as a “Forest Fire Warden”. He climbed the tower at French Portage faithfully 3 times a day. Leo left the tower and settled with Anne at her parents homestead in French Portage where they worked. Leo and Anne were the last family to leave French Portage where they lived 365 days a year. They had no children but loved many.
Later in retirement they bought a house on Clarence St. in Kenora. Leo got a retirement job at McDiarmid Lumber as a delivery driver to keep himself busy while Anne stayed home.
Leo’s selflessness knew no boundaries, yet he never sought recognition of thanks. He had much respect for mankind, he never spoke a harsh word against anyone. He enjoyed people and was loved by all that knew him.
We express our appreciation to LWDH, Pinecrest Home for the Aged, Cory at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre for the care and compassion shown. As per Leo’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service. Both Leo and Anne will be committed at a later date.
On Leo’s last day with John, John asked ‘Uncle is there anything you need to confess before you meet the Lord?.... Leo responded “I think I’m good”, he pulled up his covers and was at peace, as shortly he would be on his way to GOD’S KINGDOM.
