Leonard was always a good neighbor and friend. You could always count on him to help work cattle, build fence, burn pastures or anything else needed. Such a strong, determined man that never let anything get in his way of getting things done. He will be extremely missed. God Bless

Dear Carol and family,

I wanted to express my sympathy during this time. So many fond memories of the early days of Wildewood and our two families gathering together. Especially 4th Of July. Now our families are gathering in Heaven. Take comfort in your memories and know in your hearts he’s in a better place.

My heart felt prayers go out to his entire family. Leonard was a kind and good man. I am glad his suffering is over and he and his Dad can catch up on the good times in heaven.
