DUANE KING

November 20, 1944

– July 17, 2021

An exceptional man has passed on, but he will never leave us. Duane died in the early morning of Saturday, July 17, 2021, gently released from the ravages caused by cancer. He was the beloved husband of Leona (Leeck) for more than 55 years and son of Kenneth and Phyllis (Lewis) King. He was the younger brother of Norman King (Shirley) of Picture Butte and older brother to Janet Bennett (Westley) of St. Paul, Ab. The cherished brother-in-law to Beverly Leeck (Michael Langlands) of Edmonton, Dianne Larko (Terry) of High River, and Christine Joll of Dallas, Tx. Always the proud uncle to his nieces and nephews and their spouses. He held a special place in his heart for Alessia Giovetti of Italy, who was like a daughter to him. He was blessed with a special cousin, Phil Lewis and many dear friends.

He was predeceased by his mother and father, Kenneth and Phyllis (Lewis) King, and brother-in-law Edward Leeck.

Duane was born in Lethbridge at the Galt hospital and spent most of his years farming in the Picture Butte area. When he retired and moved to Lethbridge he created the back yard oasis to stay in touch with the earth. He was a collector of most anything and an avid reader.

Duane’s kind and caring personality will remain in our memories forever.

In his memory you might consider planting a perennial garden or hanging a birdhouse or feeder. And above all, perform a random act of kindness.

A family celebration of life is being planned.

Mr. John Pinto of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Mrs. Celia Pinto, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at the age of 93 years. He was a resident of Garden View Lodge.

John will also be warmly remembered by extended family and friends across Canada and the world.

John grew up in Mombasa, Kenya. He attended college in India, then returned to Mombasa to become a high school math teacher and later a principal. John left teaching after 25 years and began a new career as branch manager of an industrial equipment wholesaler. At age 65, John retired to embark upon another adventure – immigration to Canada.

Upon arriving in Lethbridge, John joined the LSCO where he happily attended, and subsequently taught, computer courses. His colleagues will remember his teaching skills, his ability to create curriculum, and his dedication to the Computer Club over the following 20-plus years.

He was also known for his humility, curiosity, cheerfulness, and his consideration for others. His family particularly admired his patience and dictionary-knowledge of English words! John’s quiet, peaceable demeanor touched the hearts of more people than he would ever have believed. He will be missed.

A Funeral Service will be held at 10:00 am, on Saturday, July 24, at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610-4 Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta.
