Leo Harry Hoodicoff

The devastated family of Leo Harry Hoodicoff wishes to announce his unexpected passing at this home on Monday, May 19, 2014, blessed with 60 years of life.

Leo was born in Nelson on November 12, 1953 to parents Helen and Harry Hoodicoff. He worked for CP Rail for 20 years. During his working life he had a business making cedar shakes, learned to be a mechanic and held numerous other jobs. Leo enjoyed hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, camping and making excursions to the Valhallas. Unfortunately he contracted a debilitating illness that took everything away from him.

He was predeceased by his parents Helen and Harry.

Left to mourn his loss are his sons Chris and Sean Hoodicoff.

Cremation has taken place in care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.

For Funeral Service details, please contact Chris (250 304-9276) or Sean (250 304-3804).

The family will always miss all the get togethers in Krestova and the ping-pong tournaments that led to all night jam sessions. Let’s remember Leo before his MS got to him, when he was healthy and strong, the tough man that he was. A great father and a guy who would give his shirt right off his back in order to help someone out.

“Love ya dad, we’ll miss ya, you are in a much better place now.”
