Im sending this condolence on behalf of my son, Jeff Cathey, his father was Victor Greenwood. We just recently learned of Vic's death and that is how we found this obituary for Mr. Leslie. He had a great legacy and Jeff was proud to read about him. I wish that he had been able to meet him. If anyone from your family would like to contact him @ pac32001@gmail.com, he would appreciate that.
