Jim Chrissy and Vicky,
It’s with great sadness I read of Leon’s passing. He played a major part in my young adult life. I’ve learned many of positive things as I worked for him during and even after graduating high school. I remember those days foundly and I’m taking comfort in imagining the reunion he’s had with Joanne and Ann Louise.

Vickie, Chris, Jim and extended family members, so sorry to hear of Leon’s passing. I’ll remember him as a nice, friendly gentleman.
Glenn always spoke fondly of his “High in laws.” Ann and Joanne are welcoming him with loving, open arms. God bless.
