Leon was always a man of quiet strength. He was very respectful of my father and always treated me like I would hope I am seen as treating others. My condolences and prayers to his family.

Leon was one grade ahead of me at Jackson Indiana High School. We were friends. In high school we talked on the phone often about the latest radio episode of the Lone Ranger and Jack Armstrong the All-American Boy. We listened to the programs nearly every day.
