Leonard “Len” Vermey

Leonard “Len” Vermey was born in the Netherlands in 1931, immigrated to Canada in 1953 with the love of his life Mary, passed away Saturday May 5, 2018 at his home holding her hand and surrounded by his loving family. During their 65 years of marriage they raised and loved 9 children, enjoyed every moment they spent with their 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. He will be watching with that sparkle in his eye when the 9th great grandchild is born. He taught all of us to work hard and play hard. A kind, sweet, patient, gentle man who kept his sense of humour to the end. A part of him will remain in each of us. A celebration of life will follow at a later date. Memorial contributions may be directed to VON – Chatham Kent branch.

  2. Family Schuurman in Holland.
    We remember Leen ( his Dutch name ) special of our holidays in Canada. As you can see on the photo Leen always had his sparkling eyes.
    Always in for a joke, he loved to tease us, but he was also in for a serious conversation.He loved to drive us to the most beautiful places in Ontario. And we used his boat when we stayed in Mitchells Bay and we went fishing with him..
    Even though he is dead He Always stays in our hearts.
