We always enjoyed our visits with Leonard . We remember the many times he came to see us in Lake Charles for our family reunions. He always found the good in everybody and every situation. Conversations with him were always upbeat and interesting. We think he's probably up there in heaven looking for a good fishing spot. When it comes to brother- n- laws you were the best❣

So many memories, since we grew up as toddlers and then thru
out the following years on the Shiner farm. Playing hide & seek,
swinging on ropes in barn, fishing in creek & tank, hunting. Always outside but ready to be called in for dinner or lunch. Sitting at the
kitchen table only reserved for the kids. In these later years, we
again seemed to share some of the same ideas of our lifelong experiences. Thanks to Leonard for being a part of my life. May his family remember & be thankful that Leo was there. Bless you all!

No one taught me more in the oilfield than Leonard. God has a real hunting partner now. Deepest of sympathies to you all.

My favorite memory of Uncle Leonard is taking me and Shawn to go bowling-oh the patience he had! It was just the three of us and he taught us the art of picking the right ball, in order to make a strike-which he made quite a few. I will miss his smile, kindness and just the comfort of knowing a gentle soul was nearby. Aunt Gwynne snagged a Prince and their marriage has been an example of love for all of us. My prayers of comfort go to everyone in the family.
