Randle, Leslie Newman
March 21, 1936 - Sept. 9, 2007 It is with deep sadness and regret the family announces his sudden but peaceful passing under the gentle care of St. Joseph's Hospice staff after a most courageous battle with cancer. He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, Audrey, who on November 27, 1956 he vowed to love for his entire life, and he did; his children, Doug (Debbie) Randle, their daughter Melissa; Allan (Michele) Randle, their children Cody, Pam, Jenny, Ricki and Jami; Gordie (Sonja) Randle, their children Allan, Mike, Cory and families; Debbie (Gary) Liddicoat, their children Jeff, Shawn, Cedar, Gary Jr. and families; Beverly (Henry) Sovereign, their children Edward and Michelle; Melvin (Jerri-Lyn) Randle, their daughter Willow; Roy (Christine) Randle, their children Easton and Hunter who had a special place on Poppy's knee and in his heart. Les will be sadly missed by his sisters and brother, Edith (Web) Liddicoat, May Jewett, Iris Fraser and Mervin Randle along with their families. He will also be missed by his dear friends, Terry Drake, Cheryl Crandall, Allan Turner and Tom Lee. His memory will be cherished by his nieces, nephews, cousins, many, many card playing friends and all of their families, all of which are too numerous to mention individually, but were a big part of Les‘ life and heart. Les was predeceased by his parents, Alexander and Geraldine Randle; brothers Richard and Cecile Randle; sister Gracie Jewett; brothers-in-law Lloyd Jewett, Raymond Fraser and Ralph Woods; niece Missy Randle and his good friend Norma Turner. Les was born and raised in the Thunder Bay District. He loved the outdoors and worked for many years in the bush with his boys along side of him. He enjoyed the hunting, fishing, camping and boat trips he took with his family and many, many good friends over the years. He loved to talk about all the good times they had. He was always ready to provide a lending hand for any construction project that came up and he would never turn down a good game of cards. Family was the most important thing in Les‘ life. He was a loving and caring husband and father. He was a devoted and fun grandpa and great-grandpa who enjoyed any time he could spend with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a great friend to all that knew him with whom he shared many happy times with. Les was also well known for his flare with a stove. He could be found in the kitchen with a pot-roast on the stove and a cake in the oven at any given time. Audrey and Les always had an open door policy for their children's friends, their family members or anyone who stopped over at suppertime. Les will be remembered for his strength, love and support for his family and friends. By Les‘ wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 15, 2007 at Sunset Memorial Gardens with a gathering for family and friends at the Westfort Community Centre to follow.
