Edwin Leslie “Les” Weeks
September 29, 1921 – January 27th, 2018
Dr. Edwin Leslie Weeks passed away peacefully on January 27th 2018 at the age of 96. He is predeceased by his parents Sarah and Edward Weeks and by the mother of his children, Margaret Elizabeth Weeks. He leaves his loving memories to his five children, Trevor, Carol, Brian, Allan and Barrie and 10 Grandchildren, Sarah, Megan, Stephen, Maggie, Kylie, Madison, Trista, Delainey, Blake and Cameron as well as his wife Nancy Hope Weeks.
Dr. Weeks was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The youngest of eight children, he was raised on a farm in Richardson where he helped his family grow and harvest wheat crops. He put himself through Medical School by selling new Buick cars while returning to help on the farm in summers. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Saskatchewan and graduated from the University of Manitoba Medical School before starting a successful medical practice in Regina in 1957. In 1973 he moved his family from Canada to San Jose, essentially beginning a new career, working the emergency room at Good Samaritan Hospital while starting another successful Medical Practice in Willow Glen. Dr. Weeks truly loved his profession, only retiring five years ago at the age of 92. Over the course of the 40 years of medical work he performed in the San Jose area, he touched many lives. Dr. Weeks was kind, genuine and a true gentleman he will be sorely missed by his wife, family, friends and patients.
