"J'ai oublié mes clefs"... that was almost every day in Brussels when we used to live in the same street. Conclusion... I was at your home every day. The weekend we were all together in Knokke. All of us, the kids (Tessa, Joëlle, Laurence, David, Greg and Laura, together and our parents playing cards. Ronnie and Popol were my second référence. Love you and for always in my heart.

We are so sorry for your loss. It is so obvious how beloved your dad was and all the amazing connections he made with people everywhere. We feel blessed to have known him and always enjoyed our chats and time with him. He was a friend to everyone who knew him. And definitely an amazing father and grandfather to you as well. You are in our prayers. Much Love,

I have known Leo since 1997, as a sales-rep for a firm in the canvas awning industry with whom we traded. His most striking attribute is difficult to condense into one. Leo was affable, warm, out-going, tirelessly helpful, personable, and an absolutely fun person to be around. What I remember most about Leo was his response to me when I asked about the extent of his sales territory. He said, "I cover everything east of the west coast." God bless you, Leo, and all those for whom you care. You will be dearly missed.
