Leo Sylvester Obituary, Death – It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Leo, who left this world on Friday, September 15, 2023, at the age of 77, with his devoted wife, Lauraine, by his side at Kirkland Lake Hospital. Leo’s journey began on August 22, 1946, in Cadillac, Abitibi, Quebec, where he came into the world just moments before his twin sister.
Raised from the age of two in the vibrant community of mileage 104 Cobalt, he embarked on his working life at the tender age of sixteen. Leo’s first job was with Elton McKnight, and he went on to work at various places, including the Sherman Mine, Latham’s, MTO, and Birch’s. Leo’s career took him across Canada, where he made his mark in the Diamond Drill Industry and excelled as a heavy equipment operator.
