I am saddened to learn of Leon's passing. He was always very kind to me
over the many years I served as your mailman, Martha. He always gave me a "nice"
hard time and ended it with a smile. I miss the good people much more than
the Post Office itself and Leon was one of my favorites. Sincerely Dean and
Hope Fraser

Saddened to hear of Leon's passing. Always enjoyed his sense of humor, admired his sense of values and was privileged to be his nephew. He is and will be missed. My sincerest condolences wishes for peace to Martha, Mark and Susan.

I was so sorry to hear about my Uncle Leon, he was a wonderful man. I'm glad we got to chat on the phone and send each other some pictures not that long ago. He will be missed a lot but he will always be in my heart.

Frank & I were very sorry to hear of Leons' passing. I worked with Leon when I was much younger and he was a great boss and always fair in all of his dealings. He was a good boss and a great friend. Martha, we hold you in our prayers and may God Bless you in this time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear of his passing He was always fair in his dealing with Brenda & I. His knowledge of the financial world will not be equalled for a long time. We willl miss his smile and that famous as mentioned before, the wink.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Leon, we were out of town and did not know until the visitation passed. He was truly a great friend and I have so many fond memories of working with him. He will be missed by many.

I'm sorry for your loss. Leon hired my dad many years ago and I had the opportunity to get to know him. I remember going to visit him when he was in the hospital at Methodist. Leon was always good to me and my family. My thoughts and Prayers are with you at this time.
