Leo and I met in 3rd grade and became good friends. We remained friends throughout our whole school career even continuing into college. Leo would sometimes come to the student life building at lonestar where I work and we would always stop and talk to each other. I will always remember and cherish all the interactions we have shared throughout our friendship. And I will always be thankful for how lucky i am to be able to know him and to be able to call him my friend. Till next time Brother

Leo is the most selfless and beautiful human being I have ever crossed paths with. I taught him for 11th grade history and I used to call him Leo Suave, as he had this personality that would light up any room and that hair and fashion that was so smooth. Leo is so genuine and would give the shirt off his back for anyone. Seriously, he offered it a couple different times to students who would spill drinks on themselves or what not. He was so sweet and unique. I remember even after he went on to 12th grade he would say hey, Miss Fitz even from afar. We used to see each other so much throughout the day we knew each other’s voices without even having to turn around. Just a shout or hand up back at you. Leo was always after school whether it was for tutorials (he loved learning-had a passion for science and all of its mysteries). He also stayed after for choir and other extracurricular activities. One moment in particular I remember like it was yesterday. I over heard him reading poetry to a “lady friend” of his that he was really into for her personality.I kind of came up abruptly from the hallway and of course he said “Fitz” and asked how my day was. But, in that moment I remember thinking, wow.This man and human is really going to change and touch even more lives than he already has.He used to talk about his mom, dad and siblings and how they lit up his world and they were all very close.He even inherited his dads name and he loved that.We used to talk about our families and how fast time flies and it is important to appreciate the ones closest to us.I had just become an auntie and he would always ask me about my nephew and family and then we would talk about his. He is a soul that is untouchable and irreplaceable.Everyone inside and out of the classroom respects.He would always lend a hand or throw his positive energy at you.You couldn’t help but to smile when he would talk to you or even walk in a room. I will carry him with me everywhere I go. He taught me so much.

I had many classes my junior year with Lio, but the most memorable was Physics. We would joke, we'd help him understand concepts, we would just have a good time in that class. I had been going through some rough times, and he helped mitigate with his hilarity, positivity, and overall peculiar style. He was incredibly intelligent and talented, and it's a shame that he's gone. It's hard to believe, really. Just a few days ago, he was messaging the group chat. Now all we have left are memories. Hearing about this loss was a huge surprise. I didn't believe it at first, and now, well, now it's real. He meant a lot to me, and many others as well. It's heartbreaking to see him gone so soon.

From working together at Studio Movie Grill to going on car rides to eating out with one another just because we loved each other’s company. Leo, I would have never thought. You were such a dope friend. I miss you bud. Fly High and play every piano you come across. Thank you for loving and supporting me. I am praying for you and your family.
