Yes, his Hebrew name may have been Laib, often in a couplet like Aryeh
Laib or Yehudah Laib. His full Hebrew name should of course be on his
tombstone - if he is buried in Canada perhaps you know where and get
someone to confirm.

Thanks to all the people who replied (so promptly!) with suggestions,
which were: Leib or Lazar (lots of nominations for both), Eliezer,
Elazer and Aryeh Leib.

As far as I know he was buried in Winnipeg,and I have looked at the
Winnipeg listings on the Cemetery Project Disc. His last name was
Cohen, and there are three possible names (Lazar, L. and Lawrence
Earnest- no, really). There's no other information and in particular,
no date that would help me to at least eliminate, and I'm not aware of
any family members in Winnipeg who would know which grave it is.
Unfortunately it was a family that became acculturated very quickly and
the daily use of Hebrew and or Yiddish names disappeared, so I'm not
hopeful that any of my comtemporaries will know.

Never heard of the Hebrew name TUDROS.
Can you elaborate ?
