Leo Laros Passing - Updated Jan 12th

Monday January 7th, 2013

Leo was admitted to the hospital on Thursday, January 3rd, and it is with great sadness that we announce that Leo passed away from complications due to pneumonia on Sunday January 6th.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.  He will be missed.

While not an active participant in judo, Leo was fixture at many tournaments and was certainly known to many in our judo community.  He became part of our judo community through the involvement of his son's participation in the sport and made many friends along the way.  For many years until recently, Leo also provided transportation services of the Judo Ontario mats to virtually all the tournaments in the province.

A memorial celebration for Leo will be held on January 20, 2013 at the Newfoundland Club in Cambridge from 12pm to 4pm.  Guests are encouraged to bring pictures, stories, and a smile. Memorial donations may be made in Leo’s name to makeawish.ca or alzheimer.ca “Drive to Live, Live to Ride” .
