To all our beloved Leitsteins,
Uncle Stan was so blessed to have a family so full of unconditional love for him. It was obvious to anyone watching him with Debby, that he was madly in love with his bride for 62 years.
Love you all,

Mrs. Leitstein, Linda, Diane and Judy, I am so very sad to hear of Mr. Leitstein's passing. I have happy memories of sitting in your screened porch, singing to the radio and laughing hysterically. I hope you will be comforted by great stories and memories.

Stan mentored me when I became a member of the Wanamassa First aid Squad and Fire Company. His leadership, guidance, friendship and love of service gave me the structure to serve our community for 40 years. My deepest appreciation goes with the knowledge that Stan left this world much better than when he arrived.My sincere sympathy to Debbie and the rest of his loving family.
