EUWEN, Leonardus Cornelis
February 14, 1938 – January 4, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Leo Euwen announce that, after a short and sudden illness, Leo passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family. He will be deeply missed by Carmel, his loving wife of 52 years, adoring children Elaine (Michel), Kevin (Sarah), Suzanne (Wade) and as a cherished Opa to grandchildren Taylor, Carter, Seamus, Elle and Ivy. Predeceased by his parents Derk and Margaretha (van den Heuvel), sisters Greet & Truus and brothers Dick and Richard; survived by brother Bas; sisters Rie & Ann and his many nieces, nephews & cousins.

Born in Amsterdam, the seventh of eight children, his adventurous spirit brought him to Canada, landing in Montreal at age 17. Later moving to Toronto to work on the construction of the new TD Towers as a Specialized Welder, he met the love of his life, Carmel.They moved to Georgetown to raise their family, later following his dream of retiring to the country and building a hobby farm where they have lived for over 20 years. He lived a wonderful life there and loved giving his grandchildren rides in the wheelbarrow and on the tractor. Leo loved his dogs, horses, donkeys, goats, as well as walks in Cedarvale Park, hikes on the Bruce Trail, gardening, birdwatching, camping, jazz and classical music. He enjoyed many good times including family barbecues and trips to Wasaga Beach, Cape Cod, Florida, England, Ireland and the Netherlands to visit family and friends.

Leo was very talented and loved to build things with his hands, the largest project being the barn for his animals.One of our favourite projects is the custom-built backyard fire pit that he made for us this past summer. To know Leo was to love Leo.He will be remembered by his family, friends and neighbours as a fun-loving, gentle and honest man. His sense of humour and his laughter will be remembered forever, far and wide. Always welcoming, his warm and kind heart touched many.

Our family wishes to thank the dedicated medical staff at Georgetown and Oakville Trafalgar Hospitals for their gentle care. A very special thank you to the gifted Dr. S. Cui and the devoted ICU team at Oakville Trafalgar for their compassionate care of Leo.

Arrangements are entrusted to the MacKinnon Family Funeral Home.
When the grass is green and the flowers bloom, we will gather together in the warm sunshine at the farm welcoming friends & family to commemorate and celebrate his life.
In lieu of flowers, a donation in Leo's memory may be made to The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada or Lab Rescue.

“He was so kind and funny, and he always made me smile. Even though he’s no longer with us, he will never be forgotten.” - Taylor Euwen Whitten.

40 years ago I met Carmel as teacher in Peel. My wife Jane instantly embraced our new friends and loved Leo for his kindness and sense of humour. Leo's hobby farm in Milton was a magical place.

Dear Carmel, we were so saddened to hear of Leo’s passing. It was wonderful to have many visits with him when we visited Acton. Leo was always cheerful and positive whenever we shared his company. Carmel, our love and prayers are with you at this sad time. Love, Rob and Claire Solda

My deepest condolences, prayers and love to the Euwen family. I met Leo and Carmel for the first time this past summer as Elaine and I spent the day soaking in the sun and enjoying the beautiful barn animals (that Leo so proudly was raising!) He shared many stories and countless jokes. A beautiful couple that I am very fortunate to have met. Though Leo is no longer with us, may the sweet memories he has left behind fill the hearts of those who love him deeply and may those cherished memories live on forever. Elaine and family, you are in my thoughts. Thinking of you. 🤍🕊

We send our deepest sympathies to Mrs. Euwen, Kevin, Elaine and Suzanne and all of your families. I will always remember Mr. Euwen for his great sense of humor and introducing me to "Canadian Light". Although I had not seen him in many years I sure remember that laugh. Rest in Peace our Friend.
Josh Reyce and family
