Shediac Cape, NB – Lee Floyd Bateman, 70, passed away at the Moncton Hospital on Sunday, August 23, 2015, after a lengthy battle with multiple myeloma cancer.
Born on Moncton Road, NB, he was the son of the late Harold Wellesley and Mabel Victoria (Duffy) Bateman.
Besides his parents, Lee was predeceased by his wife of 39 years, Linda (Bastian) Bateman and his sister Dora. He will be sadly missed by his children, Amanda Leaman (James) of Riverview, Harold Bateman (Michelle) of Toronto, ON, Benjamin Bateman (Joelle) of Shediac Cape and Clinton Bateman (Sophie) of Cocagne; his much loved grandchildren, Analee and Kenzie (Benjamin) Bateman, Peyton (Clinton) Bateman, Maxwell (Amanda) Leaman and Sydney (Harold) Bateman. He is also survived by his siblings, Cecil Bateman (Noreen) of Osbourne Corner, Ralph Bateman of Sussex, Noreen Johansen (late Peter) of Bellisle Creek, Myrtle Bateman of Shediac Cape and Della Bateman of Shediac Cape; and several nieces and nephews.
In 2005, Lee retired from Canada Post after 33 years. He worked for Eastern Fence for the 5 years prior to that. Lee was a hard worker and could normally be found working on the family farm, working in the woods, helping his children with projects, or playing with his grandchildren. He could fix anything and there was always something that needed to be fixed.
