Leonard James Buskey

November 24, 1956 - March 18, 2015


Buskey: Leonard James

Nov. 24/1956   ~    Mar. 18/2015

Leonard passed away peacefully at his home on River road in Chemainus in the early evening of March 18th.  Len loved his property which was a common social gathering for his family and many friends.   Len's home always had that revolving door.

Len grew up on Vancouver Island primarily in Lake Cowichan.  He married at a young age to his first love, Tammy Weaver, where the classes they missed caused by the kiss gave them 3 beautiful girls together. Those two young fools, Len always wondered “do you think of me?”

Len's journey was not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting “holy Dinah, what a ride!!”

Weary of reading obits, Len wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctor's orders and raising hell for almost six decades.   He enjoyed his booze, cars, safety meetings, feeding his birds, dancing, playing the spoons and most of all his friends.


For the latter part of Len's life he reunited with Debbie, his last love.  A love of 23 years ago bringing him much happiness and a love of 15 on his scale of 1 to 10.  Certainly a love meant to be.

Len was predeceased by his parents Rose Anne and John.

Lovingly remembered by his family; children, Kristine (Chris) Anderson , Jamie (Rocky) Wise and Erin Robertson &(Gord). Papa also had 8 grandchildren Jordan, Jake, Josh, Emily, Madison, Ryder, Billy and Randi. Siblings, Lawrence (Betty), Lorna (Bob), Florence (Bella Coola Bob), Marilyn (Wayne), Garnett (Amy) and Joe (Becky) and #1 Son “Buzz”

Leonard will also be missed dearly by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and a ton of friends.  His memory will be with them, where many stories will be told with love, laughter and tears.

A Celebration of Len’s Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Chemainus, BC on Saturday April 4, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.  Come and share your stories.  There will be a cash bar, snacks along with a designated driver for those in need!  In Lieu of flowers please buy your buddies a beer or make a donation to the Heart and Stroke foundation. Online condolences may be shared at www.hwwallacecbc.com
