Les O’Shea (July 30, 1956 to December 21, 2018)
Father of Tom (Rebecca) & Cheryl (Devon), Husband to Bev, Son of Bud & Angie, Brother to Sandi (Robb), Uncle to many nieces & nephews
Les loved music and learned to play guitar at an early age. He was a great cook and loved to BBQ for friends & family, especially at the lake. He always made sure everyone had a good drink, good food & great music. He was a natural athlete & played hockey, ball and lacrosse. Les was a member of the Outlaws hockey team and spent many hours on and off the ice with them. He loved nothing better than playing with his kids when they were young and introduced them to the love of music early on. His quick wit and great sense of humour could leave you laughing so hard you’d fall out of your chair.
Les worked hard his whole life, mentored many a plumber and was a respected businessman. Les was a good & kind-hearted soul who was taken far too early by the disease of alcoholism. Rest easy now Big Guy.
A celebration of Les’s life will be held at Cherished Memories in Martensville at 1:30 on Jan 12, 2019. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. The family would like to thank the doctors & nurses at RUH for their care & dedication.
My heartfelt condolences to the family. Les was a man that I had the privilege to work with many times over the last 35 years, and I have never worked with anyone I would consider a better man; he will be missed by many.
I found out about Les passing way too late. He made an effort to come out and see me a few years back when I was performing. I’ll always remember him as my cousin Butchie, a young, strong, solid guy. Wish we were able to stay more in touch as a family, only ever talked to Butchie maybe 4-5 times in his life, I will miss him even giving tthose brief moments we spoke. Hopefully see ya again in a better place Butchie, until then peace and love to your family, so sorry for your loss, all our loss.

To Mr. and Mrs. O’Shea (Bud and Angie), Bev, Sandi and families,
Yesterday I learned of Les’s passing. I am so very, very sorry. Les was a wonderful friend, athlete, and such a good person.
I remember fondly my time spent with your family at Waskesui and at your home in Saskatoon. Sandi, you were a great friend, I remember all the laughs and good times we had with your family.
Sending you my heartfelt sympathies.
