Llewellyn Elliott Cumming

Llewellyn Elliott Cumming

Llew was born in Mission

on May 12, 1927

and sadly on June 22 this year

he left us to go to heaven.

He met Fay in 1949, and then they had

Bonnie, Penny and finally Paul in 1963.

Dad did his best to expand

the Cumming family tree.

Llew was on Ashcroft

committees galore,

the Ashcroft Museum, Stampede, Centennial,

Soap Box, Fall Fair and more.

He was a member of the Ashcroft Board of Trade

and alderman for the town

before he decided “enough is enough”

and stepped down.

He worked with his parents at the Ashcroft Journal,

the family paper,

until they sold out in 1978,

some years later.

Llew and Fay had a couple of businesses

before they were done,

Penny’s Fabric and The Print Shoppe

were hard work, yet fun.

As some of you know,

Llew’s love of poetry was simply sublime,

he could take any subject

and put it to rhyme.

This is why this obituary

is in this form,

simply because he was someone

out of the norm.

Llew was predeceased by Fay

and his grandson John.

His brothers Jerry and Terry

have also gone.

He is survived by Bonnie & Jim,

Paul & Nancy, Penny & Al,

brother Robert, other family

and some of his pals.

Grandchildren; Scott, Graham,

Bonnie and Trevor,

Great grandchildren; Kade,

Jordan, Nathan,

Avery and Ryan complete

the score.

“Dad wherever you wander

or wherever you are,

we will search the skies

for your bright star”.
