Leo was a true friend. He influenced our lives in many ways, especially showing us how to serve in the Catholic faith. He "walked" his "talk" as they say. He kept his promise to the love of his life, Thelma, to honor their shared faith. He was always available, no matter the task, serving at the coffee hour, lector, usher and bringing communion to all that requested it. Knights of Columbus was very high on his list of commitments along with taking care of all the children; small or grown, he loved them all. He made many memories that we will never forget. With love from Sharon, Elizabeth and Theresa

Leo will be remembered by me as a true gentleman. We met a church and if he came to my house for an event always brought some homemade breads. He loved the children and would try and slip them a hard candy instead of a handshake. He was smiling and light hearted, looking very sharply dressed in a suit every Sunday. Several woman at the Parrish were happy to look out for him to take him to appointments and include him because he was so nice and enthusiastic about being with people. He believed that people should gather together in community and was the leader for providing the donuts after mass for many years even if he had to fund the operation himself. Leo set an example of what participation looks like for everything that he did, he was fully present.
