I had the pleasure of working with Leo from 1980 to 1985 at Credit Foncier in Halifax, NS. Leo had a very funny and gentle soul. He was a great coworker and I'm so sorry for your loss. Prayers and hugs! Pam

My deepest sympathy to Leo's loving family. When I think of Leo I remember a good looking, fun loving guy. I think about the laughter and good times spent with the Lefort family in their home on Joe's Lane.

A sad day today as we heard of Leo's passing. We worked together at Credit Foncier many years ago. With time and distance , we lost track.

We fondly recall Leo's quick wit, sound counsel and positive attitude. He was always a great "glass is half full" guy and, in spite of the passing years, we will miss him.

Uncle Leo was a brilliantly smart and handsome man who was very quiet spoken. He loved conversations that involved up to date world news. I will most remember his wonderful smile and how I still laugh and cherish our inside jokes.
