Way too many memories to post, due to our families spending so much time together while I was growing up, even if distance & travel was involved.
Uncle Leo was my Godfather.
He also was one of my dad’s older siblings by only two years. Uncle Leo made it over 20 years longer than my dad. I was so glad I was able to spend time with him and many relatives in late September of 2019, due to me living several states away & had to be in Michigan for other reasons, but a mini family reunion was put together, he was brought into town.
I was able to talk to him often or through cousin Gerry over the years. He was a great source for family history.
Words can’t describe how much he will be missed, but he was lucky to have a long & active life.
All my love & prayers go out to his children, grandchildren, & great grandchildren.

Leo was my friend and first cousin since childhood. We double dated after I introduced him to Terry and were married in the same year, 1953.. Still visited in later years. A great man who will be missed but is now with the Lord. My prayers for Leo and family.

Cf. Ps 28 (27):8-9
The Lord is the strength of his people,
a saving refuge for the one he has anointed.
Save your people, Lord, and bless your heritage,
and govern them for ever.
My prayers for Leo, Gerry, Larry, and John

GreatGrandPa Leo's last photo which was taken just twenty-four minutes prior to his passing at 4:16 PM ET. His first-born son, Gerald, also in this photo, prompted the taking while standing vigil and having attended to Leo's care and personal affairs over the past several years. God Bless you, Gerry, for your leadership and selfless sacrifice for our Dad.
