“Soaring Black Eagle”
With sadness we announce that Lenny Roulette began his journey to the Spirit World on October 17, 2023 in Vancouver, BC at the age of 44 years.
Lenny will be lovingly remembered by his partner Wendy, children Preston (Precious) and Ashton, grandchildren Irayna and Greyson, siblings Anna, Brenda, Carolyne, Reynold, Francis, Greg, Linda, David (Wendy), Curly (Denise), Colin, Iris, Randy and Joseph, as well as many nieces, nephews, aunties, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents Gloria Roulette and Clarence Longclaws, and brothers Trevor, Allen and Smiley.
Lenny grew up in Long Plain, but as he grew older, he loved to travel. He was a traditional man, and he enjoyed spending his time picking medicine, and making rattles, drums, pipes, and regalia, as well as painting.
Lenny will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
Wake will take place at Long Plain Spirit Lodge on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 beginning at 4:00pm. Feast and Ceremony will be held at Long Plain Spirit Lodge on Thursday, November 2, 2023 beginning at noon, followed by burial at the Long Plain Cemetery.
A tree will be planted in memory and cared for by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel. www.mckenziesportagefuneralchapel.com
