On Leo Sabulsky, from a friend

Teacher, educator, friend of the aged, and friend of youth; giving his time to read to the dying and take a lonely young man out for lunch; meticulous and timely in his response to Chetwynd’s flood emergencies, he saved us untold headache and hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in recovery costs – this was Leo.

Beautiful Gardens, the annual event to recognize and publicize the green energy so alive with vitality in Chetwynd – Leo pushed it every year.

There’s more. Each of you who knew him will have your own stories to tell, especially if you were a volunteer fire fighter, a student, an employee, or just a friend.

Only a few words for a man for our troubled times who has left us; Leo rests from his labors; the rest of us must labor on.

Merlin Nichols, a friend.
