Leonard was such a great person. He came into Moore’s all the time and we would just sit and talk for hours. He would always talk about cooking and where to get the best when you go out of state. He would always ask me why I’m a vegetarian and then sit there and name off all these foods and ask if I eat them. He would of course be disappointed every time lol He was just really warm and a good friend, he will be missed dearly.

We both started at Chiyoda on the same day. He was always helpful and always had something funny to say that made you laugh. He always seemed to have positive attitude towards everything.

Rhonda, I will always be thankful I got to know him through work. I loved talking and laughing with him. You, Leonard and I had a great time back in the days when they would let us. It was very sad when I seen what you put on Facebook. I know you where there for me and you should know I will be there if you want me. Love you and my prayers are with you and the rest of the family. Cheri 😢
