In loving memory ~
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Leroy Mowery, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend on October 29, 2023, surrounded by his loving family and dear friends, the Russills.
Leroy pursued a successful career as a teacher with the Nelson School District where he taught with dedication and excellence.
A lover of Rock & Roll and Country Music, Leroy loved playing in several bands over the years and playing campfire songs on the beach at his beloved home at 10 mile. He inspired his students to the love of music that many have encompassed into their entire lives.
He was a dedicated and loving husband to his dear wife Sharon of 58 years through all of life's ups and downs. As a father, Leroy was a constant source of guidance, wisdom, and love for his children, Brent (Sara), Dean (Mandy), Shandy (Carrie) and Stacey (Jason) as well as a warm, caring grandfather to his eight grandchildren., Ryan, Peyton, Hannah, Ellie, Dylan, Addison, Tyler, Josh. He also leaves his many in laws that were his family.
The family extends their heartfelt appreciation to all those who have offered their support and condolences during this difficult time. Also to the staff at Mt. Lakes Senior Community who cared for him unconditionally through his final years. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to your charity of choice in Leroy's honour.
Hope you have a band going with Donna and Buck.
The Mowery Family
