LEE (LELAND) JAY COCHRAN

Born September 23, 1948

Died August 29, 2010

We are deeply saddened that Lee left us so suddenly and so soon. Lee was born and grew up in Campbell River and then spent time on Salt Spring Island working as a line man and supervisor with B.C. Hydro until retirement. Lee had many loves and achievements; to each one he gave his utmost. He was the youngest person at the Campbell River Flight School to get his flight wings and he so enjoyed flying. He rebuilt many cars, which he loved racing. He also raced sailboats; his favorite ones were Bodacious and Impatience.

But most of all, we will remember Lee for his three great loves; life, family and friends. His wonderful storytelling was proof of that.

Lee is survived and will be greatly missed by his wife and friend Mary, his son Todd (Karen) and grandson Wyatt, sisters Diane and Darlene (Murray), brother Marty (Karen), and his very faithful friend and dog Paisley.

A celebration of Leland’s life will take place on Saturday, September 11th, at 2 p.m. from Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road, Courtenay. Should friends wish, donations in his memory to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
