Leonard was our first born. He was given the nick name Squeaky. He sure was a good son. He was always by my side. No matter what was going on, he would try to fix whatever he could, so there was no worry. He was a loving and giving person to most. He was one of a kind, and he will forever be in our hearts. I just want everyone to know that Leonard put up a good fight to live as long as he could, but God felt he needed him more. He’s no longer in pain. He sure gained his angel wings..
Love you, son

I always looked up to my brother as a great role model. He was my big bro even though I looked him as I was his big little sister lol. He seemed to understand everything that we had talked about through the years including my life changes. He was always there no matter if he didn’t like a situation, he'd never back out on me.. He had always made sure from the time my kids were born (his nieces and nephew) he was there for them: if it was just a phone call checking on them, or doing a pizza and video game night with Brayden, to having a movie and taco night with Brianna & Brooklynn, he cherished his nieces and nephew always.. A few days before he had passed, he made sure they went on a outing even if it was just a walk, he felt it was what he had to do just to spend the last little bit of time he had left with them. My kids were his everything.. Squeaky and I had a lot of alone time just talking about life, going on the mats bus, meeting up with friends just to talk, or him coming over just to talk, and to see my dogs, but as he would say that they were his girls.. When he ended up getting sick, we spent more time together as if he needed me there, and not one second I wasn’t there for him. He was my cancer center buddy. If I had to go to the cancer center to see the nurse, he was there seeing his nurse. If he had his dr appointment, I had mine or tried to get mine when he had his. Those are the days I’m truly going to miss.. I learned so much in the last year more in the last 6/8 months I think he picked me to care for him as his care giver cause I think he knew 100% I would fight for him, and that’s what I did till he took his last breath. I was there holding him through it all. He truly was a rock, and he was my rock.. I have the upmost respect for my brother. He truly is a man true to his word; when he said he would care for our mother, he did for the last 10 years-- that was a mother and son bond that couldn’t be broken. My brother truly was a my rock star. RIH Squeaky Lee, love you..

I remember Squeaky, meeting him when he was a baby, and getting to hold him when my sister, Debbie, and Leonard took him to meet us when we lived in Laconia, Indiana. I loved him. I remember every Sunday we went to Cumberland, Indiana to Pizza Hut. I also remember him going with me, when my son died, to a candlelight memorial. He was there helping me deal with this. He had a good heart. There will never be another Squeaky. I never seen anyone fight cancer like he did. Rest easy nephew. I know it is tearing me up, but I know you are not suffering, and you are with your grandmothers and grandfathers and aunts ready to love you in heaven R I.P

What a guy! I had the pleasure of working with this generous man for years in Indy. We shared a lot of laughs. We could always count on Leonard for anything! I have no idea where they are, but I know I have some pics of him and I at the club somewhere. Rest in peace my friend.

I worked with Leonard at World Mardi Gras in Indianapolis. He was a kind soul. Many memories, too many to list. Love to the family.

I loved when he came to visit. He knew how much I loved White Castles. Everyone would try to get him to go get something else, but he would say, "No, my Aunt Bettye loves White Castles and every time I come to visit I always get them for her." and he did. He was such a good man. Love him so rest in peace Leonard
