Leonard was an honorable, loving man. He loved his family, and he loved his neighbors. Everything he did was for the
betterment of his family and his community. He supported his children in all their endeavors. He loved hosting family gatherings, especially family barbecues. A family member summed it up best, "Uncle Leonard, that's my daddy!" Leonard was the consummate family man who lived by the Golden Rule, "Do until others as you would have them do unto you."
