Leonard Walter Marcischuk


Mr. Len Marcischuk was born November 16th, 1938 in the municipality of Strathclair, MB. His departure from us occurred early morning the day of Wed. Oct 14th, 2020 in Lac La Biche, AB. Len was a long time resident and active community member of Ft. McMurray, AB. Len moved to Ft. Mac in 1973 & worked for Suncor 20+ years with a Steam Ticket (Power House) & Millwright (Mine Maintenance). In his early years he attended Tec-Voc H.S. in Winnipeg, MB. Len was also enrolled in HMCS Military Service (MB) with no deployment. Later Len attended Keyano & NAIT College respectively to achieve his Red Seal status for his trade which allowed him to work in other provinces after his retirement from Suncor. Len’s tireless efforts to support his community involved service with all kinds of organizations where ever he lived. Len’s community service was recognized & he was awarded the Senior of the Year for the City of Ft. McMurray in 2016! Quite an achievement! Len has survived many major forest fires & floods in the area over the years. Len also received an award from the Ft. McMurray Fire Dept in appreciation for his life saving efforts on March 06/1990.

Unfortunately, time & persistent medical setbacks caught up with Dad. His dedication to his community and gregarious nature will be missed by all!
Len Marcischuk is survived by his sons Darren & Jayson, two grandchildren Darren James (DJ) & Shaelyn, siblings Jean Ford (Families) & Robert (Families), sister-in-law Helen (Families), brother-in-law – Barry Kalvin (Families). Pre-deceased by Mother Nellie (nee Stackiw), siblings Ernie, Donald, Eva, & Shirley.

Take care & go in loving peace Dad! Say hi to Taco as you’re in a better place now! We will all miss you.
Love from all your friends & our Families!

Your father’s journey forward will
definitely be easier and pain free.
You gave him a great deal of
support and help, when his health
failed him. Your compassion was appreciated, I am sure.
May he rest in peace

Diane Wilson, Tec Voc friend, graduated 1959.

Was shocked this morning to hear that you had passed away Len. Your FB will have several notices of the curling games going on until a friend of yours so kindly let me know. So sad to see one of our Tec Voc circle has left us so unexpectedly. Thank you for your contacts with updated pictures of things you were doing. Was sad to watch the game today knowing you were no longer enjoying the game with us. McEwen won today. I will take that as a nice win for your birthday. No more pain. You will be missed Len. Condolences to your family and friends.

Tec Voc has lost a pillar of it’s past……..will forever be remembered by many of us as “Boomer”…….he who tied the Provincial High School record for the half-mile and for his countless hallway confrontations with Miss Jones……….”Marcischuk…..what are you doing in the hallway again….???!!!!!”…………..

Sincere Condolences! I knew Len from the early 70’s, played fastball with and against him in the early days and enjoyed our time together at GCOS/Suncor.

Len, we have been friends for such a long time. We first became friends back in the ’80s when I helped coach a Fort McMurray boy’s baseball team. I have to say you were the kindest, caring friend a person could have. I know I will miss you and for sure so will your family.

Karl Blackmore

To Darren and family of Len,

Len lived a full and rewarding life. Fort Mac was his home and a proud member of his community. He is in a better place and fondly remembered.

Len was a good man. Len was a respected man. Len was my friend. His is missed.

Russell Thomas

Len became a good friend when we started fishing together about 10 years ago. He showed up at my front door one day. My wife greeted him. Len, who wanted to meet me, said “Is your Dad home?” My wife, 10 years my junior, was thrilled. Years later I was able to paint a portrait of Taco and deliver it to Len at his house with our dog Coco. I think he particularly appreciated that visit. He was a good man with an awesome sense of humour. I enjoyed our chats tremendously. Rest well Len!
