  1. Leonard was one of my best friends. In earlier days, we spent many fun times together trying to sort out issues to make our community a better place to live. It was always Leonard’s appeal to all and knowledge that moved us forward. He had a vast knowledge for the history of our area and very sucessfull with making things happen. Leonard has always been kind, professional and sincere with all I have witnessed his aqaintances with. He has always demonstrated high morals, love for family and most definitely a man with integrity. We will miss Leonard dearly.
