My thoughts are with the Leonard family.
Jim was always a good man who would go out of his way to help me with whatever I needed and talked me out of making mistakes.

He left a good legacy with his family and his business.
Thank you Jim

I always enjoyed being in Mr. Leonard's company. He made me feel comfortable with his generosity and humor. His hard work did not go unnoticed. He will be missed by many, may he rest in peace and enjoy everlasting life.
