Passed peacefully on December 26, Leonard Patrick Hynes.  Predeceased by his son Neil, parents Les and Mary Hynes; brothers Raymond, Bill and Vincent; brother-in-law Paul Chen; father-in-law Clive Chen.  Leaving to celebrate his life are his wife June and son Kyle (Jess), brothers George (Christine, deceased), Les (Lottie), Joe (Eileen), Tolson (Cecelia), Don (Janet), Chris (Sherry) and their families; sisters Patsy (Jack), Hilda (Jack), Barbara (Digger), Shirley (Ron), Lorraine (Rick), Linda (Gerry) and their families; sister-in-law- Marg Hynes; brother-in-law Allen Chen (Janice) and family.  Leonard lived a wonderful life with no regrets.  He enjoyed music and sports, especially the Toronto Blue Jays, and had hoped to see them win another World Series.  Those who knew him will remember him for his intelligence, quick wit, humour, compassion and love for his family. Following Leonard’s wishes, no visitation or service will be held, however he would like to be remembered by a random act of kindness.

To the Hynes Family
Met Len in the mid-80’s through Minor Hockey when he coached St.John’s Pee Wee’s and I was coaching Avalon and the bond was instant. Some 30 years later Len always called me by my first name. We would always chatted in passing about life and sports. A gentleman in every way respect. RIP Len.
