Leonard was a WONDERFUL friend. We enjoyed many outings and fun times with Leonard & Arlene. He was our "go to" person when we needed advice, or help with anything mechanical, etc. He always came up with an answer. He was not only smart, but very wise. He was always up for a good gag and could keep a straight face while he "nailed "you. Leonard, we are going to miss you immensely. There is now a big hole in our lives. But heaven has gained a gem. Arlene, Shelia, Bret, Rod, and families - you are in our prayers. We love you.
