Obituary

it is with heavy hearts that we annouce the passing of Mr. Metro Lekopoy, on Friday, January 11, 2019, at theMichener Extendicare Nursing Home in Red Deer, Alberta at the age of 82 years. Metro was born in Canora, Saskatchewan on March 5, 1936 and as a young boy moved to Flin Flon with his family. He received all his education in Flin Flon and graduated from Hapnot Collegiate in 1954. While in high school he met his wife Marion MacKenzie and they were married in August 1958, having recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Metro spent 35 years working at the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission eventually becoming both an Assistant Manager and Manager. He retired in 1991. As a teenager Metro was avidly involved in hockey, baseball and high school curling. He spent many years as a referee with Flin Flon Minor Hockey and the Western Canada Hockey League. In later years his interests became the sports of curling and golf – spending most of his summer mornings at the Phantom Lake Golf Course with his old friend Red and his winter evenings curling and making ice at the Ross Lake Curling Club. In 2010 Metro and Marion left Flin Flon and moved to Red Deer where they could be closer to their grandchildren. They have enjoyed many wonderful years attending their grandchildren’s school and athletic events. He is survived by his wife Marion Lekopoy (Red Deer), daughter and son-in-law Janice and Don Halverson (Red Deer) and their son Brody; daughter and son-in-law Lisa and Ian Magee (Calgary) and their daughters Emily and Madeline Magee; brothers Bill, Tony and Butch and sisters Darlene and Sandra. “Unc” will be greatly missed by his two special girls Justine and Rhianne. He was predeceased by his mother Mary Lekopoy, brother Mike Rodnisky and sister Rose Marie Struch. Cremation has taken place and a memorial Celebration of Life will be held later this summer in Flin Flon.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Metro. He was a cornerstone of the Ross Lake Curling Club and put in many hours of volunteer work to keep the ice as normal as we could. I remember going to the rink in the fall to check on the club one day and met Metro on his way out of the rink. He had a paper shopping bag of mushrooms he had harvested from the ice area. He was a good friend and will be thought of often.
Condolences to all the families from Audrey and I.
