We’ve known Leonard for most of our lives. He’s been a great fence line neighbor. Leonard built the Schmidt Arena the year we were married. We have spent many hours there riding. And recently started roping. Leonard was a always there giving you helpful tips. Our sympathies to Vivian and Family. Leonard will be missed.
