CHURMS, Leslie Jack “Les” – passed away peacefully at the Welland Hospital on Sunday, October 4, 2020 in his 99th year. Les was predeceased by his parents Louise (1970) and Sydney (1962) Churms, brothers Sydney Churms (Irene), James and sisters June Talosi (Joe), and Sandra Brown (Richard), nephew Grant Churms (2010) and niece Tana Harrison (2015). He is survived by his nephew Joe Talosi Jr. and nieces, Toni Durham, Janet Galway and Patricia Reid. Les was an avid gardener who cared for many people's lawns and flower gardens. He was also a long time member of the Welland Cribbage League where he earned several trophies and won numerous tournaments. He was such an awesome card and Cribbage player that he was affectionately and proudly known as "The Computer". Les was a kind, gentle and simple soul who will be sadly missed by all who knew and cared for him.
An extra special thank you to Brian and Louise Gaskell for the caring and loving home environment they provided for Les over the past 11 years. Les' goal was to attain the age of 100. Unfortunately he didn't quite make it but he sure came darn close thanks to all the efforts of Brian and Louise. A special thanks to Steve Talosi Jr. for his caring oversight over the past 30 years.
