Lee Stewart Balzer was born on March 1, 1970 in Regina, Sk. He was welcomed into the family of Len and Edna Balzer with much love as an answer to their prayers. During Lee’s younger years the Balzers moved to many different places. He started school in North Battleford and graduated from Caronport High school.
Lee married Cheryl Fox in January 1991, and they had three children Kirsten, Clayton, and Rick.
After some difficult events in his life, nearly a decade ago, Lee began his road to recovery through AA. Not only was this change witnessed and appreciated by his kids, and many who knew him, it also came with the unexpected blessing of meeting his love, Cindy.
Over the years Lee developed skills from a variety of jobs, that included landscaping, oil field related, carpentry, electrical, etc. When Lee wasn’t sure of how to do something, he wouldn’t stop until he figured it out. This determination and ingenuity would be of great assistance when he later created his own business, Infinity Exteriors, with Cindy.
Lee had a unique gift in communicating with people. Wherever he went he could always find a personal connection, whether it was at a Riders game, jobsite, buying a truck, or even at the hospital.
Family was always important to Lee. Soon after his wedding to Cindy, Lee’s sister Tara reached out to him, and he was able to start a relationship with his birth family. Five months ago, Lee learned he had a fourth child, a son named Kevin. He was thrilled to be able to have contact with Kevin and his family in the last few months and have them part of his family.
Lee always made time for his loved ones, making regular calls and visits with aunts and uncles and cousins. This was a priority to him.
Lee will always be remembered in the hearts of his loved ones and will be greatly missed.
