I am so sorry to hear of Leigh's passing.
I had not seen Leigh since after high school graduation in 1957. He went with me to the Navy recruiting office in downtown San Diego. I enlisted...he didn't. He was a good friend all through high school. Last week I sent him the latest Point Loma High School class of 1957 alumni directory and a DVD slide show that I made. May the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
