Lenard McDooling

May 24, 1933 — September 1, 2023

Lenard McDooling, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather, departed from our lives on September 1, 2023, leaving behind cherished memories and a legacy of love. He was 90 years old.
Born on May 24, 1933, Lenard lived a life filled with joy, laughter, and profound love for his family. He was the loving husband of Beverly McDooling, who continues to grace our lives with her presence. Together, they shared a bond that was a shining example of dedication and devotion, spanning many decades.
Lenard was a loving father to his two daughters, Debra Ann Szostak and Brenda McDooling Duce, and a father-in-law to their husbands, Roman Szostak and Don Duce. He took great pride in his role as a provider, mentor, and source of unwavering support to his family. His wisdom and guidance were a source of strength for those who knew him.
Lenard's greatest joy came from his family, being a grandfather to three grandchildren, Leanne Marie Rocha, Jonathan Ryan Duce and his wife Taylor Victoria Duce and Brayden Roman Szostak, and a great-grandfather to Lylah Jean Duce and Victoria Rocha. There is a precious little great-great-grandchild, Aria Maria Budgell, born to Victoria and Justin Budgell. He was always there to share in their milestones, offer words of encouragement, and provide a warm embrace. In the later years of his life, Lenard welcomed the arrival of his great-great-grandchild, a testament to the enduring legacy he leaves behind.
Beyond his devotion to family, Lenard was a man of many talents and interests. He had a passion for modeling boats, crafting intricate and beautiful vessels that will continue to be treasured by his loved ones. Lenard's great sense of humor added a touch of joy to every gathering and brought laughter to the hearts of those around him.
Lenard's warm smile, compassionate heart, and quick wit endeared him to everyone he met. His laughter was infectious, and his love boundless. He will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
As we mourn the loss of Lenard McDooling, we also celebrate a life well-lived and the enduring love he shared with his family. His memory will live on in our hearts, and his legacy of love, devotion, and humor will continue to inspire us all.
May his soul rest in eternal peace, knowing that he leaves behind a family united by love and gratitude for the profound impact he had on our lives.
Arrangements entrusted to the Mundell Funeral Home, Orillia.
