Leslie Moccasin was born on September 28, 1947 in Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation to Rosie (Thundervoice-peesewtaksews) Moccasin and Alex (Kaksikwat) Moccasin. Leslie worked for numerous farmers in the surrounding areas and helped his community build houses as a carpenter. He was a true humble and respectful man, his home was open to all and wouldn't hesitate to feed anyone what little he had and share a cup of tea. He was always readily available for any task. Leslie developed into a great story teller and you could sit by his side for hours listening to his stories that were passed on from his parents, local elders, siblings, relatives and friends. He was a true caretaker by nature always nurturing Mother Earth and he followed his parents teachings by gathering organic tradition medicine herbs. He enjoyed hunting, trapping, fishing and he always attended and took part in traditional ceremonies. Although Leslie never had children of his own, he was blessed with numerous nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren which he took great pride. Leslie will be missed by his humour, humbleness, kindness, caring, laughter and love for everyone.
He is predeceased by: his parents, Rosie and Alex Moccasin; his brothers, George Alexander, Lawrence Alexander, James Moccasin and Bryan Moccasin; his sisters, Georgina Alexander and Inez Thundervoice; his nephews, Harvey Alexander, Wesley Alexander, Gerald Alexander and Wallace Alexander; and his niece, Irys Thundervoice.
Leslie leaves to mourn: his numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, friends and all who knew him.
Leslie will forever remain in our hearts.
