ADAMS, Leslie
Leslie Adams
was born in Milton, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland on Nov. 30, 1915 and died peacefully in Victoria, British Columbia on Dec. 19, 2001 at age 86. He began working at age 12 to help support his mother and sisters through the Great Depression years and then joined the Newfoundland Forestry Unit stationed in Carrbridge, Scotland during World War 2. There he met Margaret who became his wife for 58 years. They lived in Toronto until moving to Victoria in 1995. Leslie read widely on social philosophy and politics, read and wrote poetry, travelled throughout North America, the Caribbean and Europe and always preferred outdoors to indoors. Wife Margaret, son Seoras, daughter-in-law Kim and grandson Rory learned from him that in an increasingly complicated world, it's still possible to lead a gracious and elegantly simple life by always keeping perspective on the importance of family and friends. Leslie requested no service and asked in lieu of flowers that his family and friends take some time to tell the people they love how special they really are.
