Lennard Ferdennand Swanson

November 5, 1934 - January 21, 2020


It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Len Swanson at the age of 85, surrounded by family in Powell River. A longtime resident of Powell River, he was known and appreciated by many. He started work in the mill at age 16 and continued until his retirement. Len had a joy for life and loved spending time outdoors with family and community. He was very active and always ready to lend a helping hand or have a new adventure. Many years and stories to tell: boating, Powell Lake, travelling, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, mushroom picking, oysters on the beach and hotdog barbeques. He will also be remembered for his volunteer work, which included the Marathon Shuffle and the BOMB Squad. Len is survived by his loving wife of 60 years Gail; his three children Kim (Mario), Dwayne (Cathy) and Dawn; four grandchildren Nadine (Steve), Giovanni (Ariel), Blair and Dean (Tracey); seven great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, along with his brothers Jerry and Dwight. He was a strong and giving man, all who knew him will miss his upbeat attitude and joy for life. Len was proud of his family, was loved dearly, and will be deeply missed by many.

My condolences Gail. You and Len were the first people I met when I came to Powell River in 1994. I met you in in your kitchen in the town site. I can’t remember the name of the fellow I was with but I went to school with him in Burnaby. He was a relative of you or Len and was staying with you guys?
On meeting you folks I thought what friendly people, full of life and joy. Over the years I eventually worked with you, and to a lessor degree with Len. You guys will always hold a special place in my heart.
