OAKHAM- Leonard ”Len” Bechan,68, died suddenly December 3,2019.  Beloved husband of Melinda “Mindy”; brother of the late Jack (Ramona) Bechan, late Colette Mecherle and Claire (Bill) Norberg; brother-in-law of Keith and Garry Kraehmer.  Loving uncle to many nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Len was a tireless worker, mentor on and off the job, with a never ending search for knowledge, challenges and improvements.  A master electrician and proud union member, Len brought many apprentices to become journeymen under his guidance.  He always offered to help on any project, and his expertise in so many areas produced impeccable accomplishments.

Len came to Oakham in 1986 to live on the farm where he spent many summers as a child visiting the grandparents. He truly enjoyed his dream life of country living and building his own beautiful home. 

Len was a loving husband and family member, a friend to all, and a great neighbor and helpful soul. He had a quick smile, a contagious laugh, and an easygoing personality that was envied by many.  Our world has lost a kindred soul.  May he proudly rest in peace.  

A Celebration of Life for Len will be held in the spring. Pillsbury Funeral Home 44 Gilbert St. North Brookfield is directing arrangements.
