Fishing on Lake of the Woods will improve significantly with the loss of Kelvin Leydier. Whether he was guiding tourists or spending time with his many friends, a trip on the lake always left it with fewer pickerel.
Kelvin died Tuesday due to complications from a heart attack he suffered six days before. He was 54.
The lake was Kelvin's home and playground. He knew it so well, he found his way after dark by the treetops.
Meeting Kelvin always left an impression. He was the life of any party and the most loyal friend. He was loved not only by his family and friends in Kenora, but many people in Winnipeg and throughout the United States.
For 21 years Kelvin owned Hinton's Mens and Boys Wear on Second Street South, but he spent as little time there as possible. He preferred being outdoors and took great pride in his contracting work building decks, docks and summer homes. He enjoyed pointing out the work he'd done along the lake from his boat.
Kelvin was extremely proud of his children Kelly, a journalist in Thunder Bay, and Kyle, who works in the film industry in Vancouver. He loved them more than he could ever express.
Born Aug. 1, 1949 to Joyce and the late Wilf Leydier, Kelvin was the eldest of seven children. Like their brother, Dennis (Pat), Lynn (Ian) Rioch, Colin (Val) and Maurice have spent their lives in Kenora. Dawn lives in Thunder Bay and Dale (Danielle) lives in Saskatchewan.
Kelvin had many nieces and nephews. He had a special place in his heart for Justin who worked in his store and spent many hours by his side.
He also loved his two cats, "The Boos."
This summer, Kelvin lost his dear friend and fishing partner "Jimmy" Fenelon.
Though Kelvin's life was far too short, he lived it his way.
A party will be held in Kelvin's honour Friday at the Kenora Curling Club from 4-8 p.m.
Instead of flowers, please donate to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation, 21 Sylvan St., RR 1, Kenora, Ont., P9N 9Z9. Specify the funds are for angiogram and related equipment.
