My sincere condolences. I was one of his co-workers at Walmart #0277.

He will be missed by everyone in our family. He was the kind of man that always had a corny joke and a smile to share (and possibly carrot juice). A very hard working man and willing to lend a hand to a stranger. Most importantly, he loved Jehovah and set a good example doing so. I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Love and prayers.

Your Dad was a special men. He was always making comments from the heart. He was always ready to help if you needed it. I know Jehovah will remember him and bring him back to his lives ones. So sorry for your loss.

I am deeply saddened by this cherished family’s loss. Leonard has left a deep hole with his sudden passing. He was a good friend to me in my youth and his daughters are very dear to me. I have always wished that words could be a comfort to those who have suffered such a loss but from experience I know this shocking and numbing reality will take time just to soften the blow. Just know that friends and family are here flocking around you feeling your deep sadness along with you.

Leonard was one of a kind, he and I used to play as kids and ride our bicycles around the neighborhood and I remember on one particular Saturday we spent the entire day cutting a rick of wood with a crosscut saw.-and then we sold it for $5.00 and split our profit! He was always laughing and cutting up. He'll be sorely missed.
