Lee Cowie
1961 – 2019
Lee George Cowie was born on Wednesday, May 26, 1961, in Prince Albert, SK, and passed away on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, in Regina, SK, at the age of 57 years. In the past few days, we have heard from so many of Lee’s friends. They spoke of Lee’s incredible skills as a communicator, and especially the deftness and clarity of his writing. They shared the joy he felt and the joy he gave as an amateur singer and actor. They smiled about his dry, indeed arid, nay Saharan sense of humour. They told of his willingness to take on a job and to ensure that it was done well. But mostly, they spoke of his kindness. Lee Cowie was, above all, a kind man. Many referred to the way he had made them feel welcomed and valued within a group, whether it was in the workplace, the Regina Lyric Singers or the Regina Lyric Musical Theatre. Perhaps the best story was the person who told us how, during his own mental health crisis, Lee had reached out and supported him in his darkest hour. Lee Cowie was a kind man. We wish he had been able to be as kind with himself as he was to others. In the last months of his life he struggled with severe depression and anxiety. In despair, he took his own life on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Lee leaves to mourn, his mother, Molly Cowie of Prince Albert, SK; his sister, Jan Cowie (Malcolm French) of Cambridge, New Zealand; his brother, Wade Cowie; his niece, Julian Wotherspoon; his nephew, Aidan Wotherspoon; and great-nephews, Oliver and Sullivan Hein, all of Regina, SK. He was predeceased by his father, George Cowie. A funeral will be held in Prince Albert in the late spring. A gathering will be held in Regina around the same time. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care of River Park Funeral Home, (306) 764-2727, Don Moriarty, Funeral Director.
Give rest, O Christ,
to your servant with your saints,
where sorrow and pain are no more,
neither sighing, but life everlasting.
