I am absolutely saddened to hear of Len's passing. Am so very grateful that Len, Lois, Tracy and Lawrence were part of my life from a very early age back in the sixties when Len first met my daddy. Amazing memories of our two families. Sending all my love and affection to Lois, Tracy and Lawrence and to their beautiful families. Blessings Len... with much love! XXXX

I was saddened to learn of Len's passing just yesterday while having Christmas dinner with my Dad. Duff and Lois Dwyer my Mom and Dad were good friends with the Brooks's as far back as I can remember and although I haven't seen Tracy or Lawrence in decades, seeing their pictures in the Celebration of Life video brings back fond memories. Len was special to me and was supportive of me in times of difficulties when I was a teenager, he was the type of man who "paid it forward" and I think that shows in the success of his children and grandchildren. The last words I had with Len were while standing beside him at my Dads retirement day while watching my Dad park a L1011, he said to me, "Your Dad and I have been flying with Air Canada our whole careers and here we are celebrating his last day of flying and tomorrow things will just keep moving forward like we were never here."
Our Condolences Lois, Tracy and Lawrence; The Dwyer family.
