Johnny Lezon of Yorkton entered eternal rest on October 2, 2019 at the age of 55 years. Walter Johnny Lezon was born on June 15, 1964 in Regina to Walter and Doreen (nee Spilchen) Lezon. Johnny's safe harbour was his AA group. This was his place of comfort for all he'd been through. We had to schedule family functions around this meeting! That is how much you all meant to him. And don't get me wrong, he loved his family and other family. Johnny spent many years in the program at West Unit. He always had great stories of his excursions and what he might have picked up. And definitely what he ate along the way!!
Then Johnny moved over to Day wellness. He loved the bus trips and daily activities. Johnny's blood family would love to thank Candace and his other family for his amazing care over the past years. When Johnny was moved into Candace's home, Candace and Linda became a team advocating and fighting for Johnny's care. And his health and happiness showed that.
Johnny was predeceased by his grandparents and parents.
Johnny is survived by his sisters, Linda (Ron) Kerr of Yorkton and Brenda Weatherby of Yorkton; his nephew, Chris (Chelsey) Kerr of Yorkton; his nieces, Terrie (Adam) Littman of Saltcoats and Kellee (Devan) Makowetski of Yorkton; four great nieces and nephews, Marissa and Camden Kerr and Emma and Kirk Littman; as well as numerous relatives and friends.
