Leonard Raymond DeMelt

May 7th, 2021

We celebrate the life of Leonard Raymond DeMelt who died peacefully in North Vancouver, B.C.
He was a loyal champion of men, a mentor, a pioneer, a team player, but the most important things in his life were his family, his dog Matilda and many friends.  
Len lived 1000 years in his 75 calendar years we had with him because he attracted life with a purpose and intestinal fortitude very few men could replicate.
Len grew up in the small town of Yellowknife as a precocious young man who loved animals and people and had global ambitions to see the world.
In the early years, Len attended the Haileybury School of Mines and received his degree and the appropriate accreditations to pursue a career as a Mining Engineering Technologist.  
After being involved in many mine start-ups and discoveries in North America, Len decided it was time to see the world. So he decided to build his mining empire and legacy in Peru by pioneering and championing numerous explorations and mining development initiatives in Peru including Norsemont which now represents 2 % of Peru's GDP.  
Len will be deeply missed by all the people he mentored and touched spiritually and emotionally. He is survived by his wife Jean, children Derrick, Stacy and Joshua, his mother Viviene, sisters Hazel and Linda, his grandsons Justin, Tyson, Isaiah and Khourey, and his beloved dog Matilda.  
Please go to Holy Trinity website for services information   https://holytrinityparish.ca/?page_id=1947.  Interment will be on 20 May 2021.
In lieu of flowers send donations in honor of Len DeMelt to Cancer Research and a local animal shelter.
