Leon was born in Cullman County, Alabama and resided most of his life in the Gardendale area.
He was a member of Liberty Primitive Baptist. He was a welder and run his own business until retiring. During retirement Leon loved to dress as Santa each Christmas and listen to all of the wish list. He cherished this opportunity more than any other job in his life. He was kind hearted and kind spirited. Leon’s message to all would be that we should all love one another regardless of our religion or ethnicity. He was a simple man and he will be sorely missed.
