So sorry to hear of Mr. O’Leary’s passing. He was a good friend of my fathers (Glen Lecour). I remember them golfing and returning to have lunch that my Mom had prepared for the two. He would often stop by my parents house for a visit. His friendship was important to my dad. I’m sure they are already catching up now!
