Leon thrived thru hardships that come with life head-on without fear of an end but more
impassioned by the journey. Through his Journey he showed us his compassion, his
commitment to his family and the ones he loved, MAY NO MORE OF A HUMBLE MAN

I was beyond blessed to have Leon as my dad he was always there to help me. I will always remember all the good times we had. He was an amazing Grandpa to Andrew and I'll forever be grateful for the time they had together.
God Bless and is with the family through this difficult time. And Leon is with God!
Love you buddy
