Leslie William Foxon passed away Sunday, July 8th, 2018 at the Third Crossing Manor in Gladstone, MB surrounded by family. He is predeceased by his parents William and Iva, brothers Laurie and Jack, nieces Diane and Cathy, nephews Larry and Richard
Les the youngest son of William and Iva (Blight) was born Oct 2nd, 1928 in Gladstone. He was raised in the Golden Stream District with his brothers Laurie and Jack. His early education was taken there in a typical country school. Les remained at home after his schooling and enjoyed his days farming.
He cared for his father after his mother died in 1964 until his death in 1974. Les then moved into his home in Gladstone
He was employed at various jobs around Gladstone, but found his true calling at the Gladstone Auction Mart where he was manager for 19 years.
Les was very happy working with livestock, but the true joy came from the lasting friendships he made there.
Les loved all sports including hockey and golf but his greatest passion was Baseball. From an early age Les was involved with the sport either as a player, coach or mentor. He loved every aspect of the game
As Les's health declined he was still able to enjoy many of the things that made him happiest because of the wonderful support of the community and friends.
Les was so thankful that he was able to spend most of his latter life in his own home only having to spend a short time in the hospital and care home. Even though the time spent there was brief, he was very grateful for the wonderful care provided and the company he received and so enjoyed.
