Obituary of Leslie Warren Sager
SAGER, Leslie Warren
On Tuesday August 23, 2022, from under the arc of the rainbow; his loving family by his side, we sadly share with you, the passing of our devoted Leslie “Les” Sager after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born April 5, 1950, into the Turtle Clan of the Mohawk Nation; Les was a gifted craftsman, avid golfer, and lifelong fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays. A lifelong resident of the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, long time member and former President of Local Union 115; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers-Kingston, and former member of Legion 280, Deseronto, Ontario and a friend to anyone who met him.
At home by the waters edge, Les could always be found enjoying the majestic flight of the swans as the sun would rise. Always found lending a helping hand to his family and neighbors, building puzzles in the old cabin while the records spin, or walking together hand-in-hand with his beloved Ruth up the laneway. There was always a project to work on, an encouraging word to share, and if you were lucky enough to be offered, there was a cookie or two, a loving wink, and a tight embrace.
Predeceased by his father Gordon Leslie Sager, his mother Eleanor Wilma Pyke (nee Brant) and his infant sister Twyla. Loving Husband of Ruth Elizabeth (nee Lloyd), celebrating their 53rd Wedding Anniversary on August 22, 2022. Greatest Father to Scott Andrew (Wendy) and Darren James (Cheryl). Loyal Grandfather to Alek Darien, Camden Bailey, Melanie Amber, Nicholas Graham, and Natalie Claire. Loving Brother to Yvonne (Goldman, deceased), Tim (Dorothy), Darlene (Brian, deceased), and Shawn (Charlene). Fondly remembered by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A private family internment will take place following cremation. For those wishing, in lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice Quinte would be appreciated by the family.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Leslie Sager, please visit our Tree Store
