It is with an incredibly sad heart that we announce the passing of Leslie “Les” Wayne Zeller who left us on Tuesday, August 1, 2023 at the age of 63. Les will be forever loved by his beloved wife Melody Zeller, his two daughters, Marnie Zeller (Spencer Weselosky) and Taylor Zeller (Justin Just); his father, Harry Zeller; his sister, Brenda (Leroy) Friesen; his brother, Barry Zeller; his brothers and sisters-in-law, Wayne (Janice) Nybo, Linda (Harold) Gates, and Lance (Dianne) Nybo, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Les was predeceased by his mother, Eleanor Zeller; his son, Logan Zeller in infancy, and his parents-in-law Basil and Hazel Nybo.
Les was born in Calgary and grew up in Medicine Hat. He attended Medicine Hat High School where he played volleyball and coached Little League baseball. After high school, Les worked as a parts man which became his lifetime career. He had a passion for the automotive industry and enjoyed his coworkers and talking with everyone who came into the store. He also loved animals, especially birds and wiener dogs. Les met the love of his life Melody in 1988 and was married in 1992. Their marriage was a beautiful example of love and partnership. Les spent the rest of his life in Medicine Hat and raised his beautiful family here. He adored his two girls and loved to talk about how proud he was of them. Les was a devoted and loving father who taught his girls the value of hard work. Les had a passion for travel and created many memories on family trips to Hawaii, Dominican Republic, Caribbean cruises and more.
Throughout his life, Les was active in many sports like baseball, curling, golf, skiing and in recent years e-biking. Les also loved softball and played in the Medicine Hat Men’s Senior Slowpitch League. Les was an incredible man. His sense of humour, laugh and kindness brightened the lives of all who knew him. He was a committed friend and always made an effort to stay in contact even with long distance friends. As his friend recently said “He was a one in a million kind of guy”. Les will be deeply missed and forever loved by so many.
Even though Les was not of the Latter-day Saints faith, he has lots of friends that are. In celebration of their friendship we will be holding Les’ funeral at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (7 Saamis Rotary Way S.W) on Monday, August 7, 2023 at 1 p.m. with Life Celebrant Pat Grisonich officiating. Interment will take place at a later date. We invite anybody from the Medicine Hat Men’s Senior Slow Pitch League to wear their softball jerseys to the funeral. To honour Les' legacy donations may be sent to Medicine Hat Little League Baseball (1150 5th Street SE, PO Box 382).
