Obituary of Lea Henry David Violette


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Lea, while visiting his friends in Hungary, on May 11, 2018, at the age of 46. Beloved father of James, Leanne, Tabatha, Michelle and Melissa. Very proud Grandpa of Abby, Damen, Lucas, Brooklynn, Liam and Evolette. Dear brother of Jackie Violette-Minor, and special uncle of Josh, Andrew and Adam. Lea will be greatly missed by his extended family and friends here in Canada and Hungary. He has been reunited with his parents Suzanne and Florian Violette. Lea enjoyed travelling, entertaining and cooking. He also enjoyed music, which ultimately made him a great DJ, which he did for many years. Our family will immeasurably miss his sense of humour and wisdom. Although Lea was taken away from us far too soon, he lived his life to the fullest. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Lea's Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 383 Morningstar Ave, Welland, on Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 12pm to 4pm. During the celebration of life, memorial donations may be given to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Lea opened his home to me when I lost my own, there’s nothing I can say to thank him enough for that.
