I first met Leon at Fairview Community Center in Linden. He had heard that a group of ladies were getting together at the community center to quilt. We really enjoyed visiting with him. In true form he brought knowledge and excitement to the gathering. I'll always respect him as a man interested in local Cass County history.
Rest In Peace Leon,
Flo Stevenson, President

Darlene and the Martin Family. Please accept my sincere and deepest sympathy for the loss of Leon. It is never easy but I hope kowing you do not have to go through this difficult time alone will help you to ease the pain. Rely on the ultimate comforter the Holy Spirit family and friends who are there for you.
Leon was a gifted man and an outstanding genealogist who has helped many to find and know their roots. We are all grateful for that. He can be considered one of the early pioneers in the field of Black genealogy research. His selfish untiring work will forever be remembered.
Will lift you up in prayer
