To the Feldt Family, just found out about Leon, so very sorry for your lose. I have known Leon most of my life and he is the one that really got me into flying, I know that he and my dad consumed quite a few adult beverages over their life time and I know that I along with the rest of the Mulveys will miss him. God be with you my friend

I have good memories of Leon. I saw him mostly durning the hollidays when I was younger. Always enjoyed his company. He could pull change from behiend my ear, and he tought me how to tuck in my shirt, and always insisted that I wore a sports coat so I could look good but still be casual. He will be missed.

Uncle Leon will be missed. It seems like we all remember his horses which mightily impressed us as kids. He did a lot of good in this world and we are sorry he is gone.

Alex and I send our condolences to all the family.
I am looking at the tea set Uncle Leon brought my mother Florence Feldt sometime during his Korean War sojourn and remembering many family get-togethers, riding horses with him in Temple TX, and much more.
Love and hugs to all,
Gloria Feldt (the one in NY and AZ)
