  12. Leo, you have touched many of us in different ways. As a husband, a father , grandfather and a cherished friend. You will be missed more than anyone will know. As I look back at over the years one of the memories that sticks in my mind is the day Chris locked you in the back of the truck because you were upset that the # 3 lost another race, you should have seen the look in you face. Rest in peace, my friend

  13. Leo…only met you once, but I feel that I know you through the stories that my Michael (Delaney) often reminices about with fond memories of you and your entire family. Especially those of the Tupper Lake area.

  18. To my family, Leo’s family all the wonderful friends, and especially my amazing kids, I thank you all so very much for all your love and support helping me get through this time. To those of you I wasn’t able to talk to, I’m truley sorry. The people whose lives Leo touched in one way or another was unbelievable, he loved everyone. We all knew different aspects of him and as maddening as he could sometimes be he had a good heart and so loved his family and friends. So to all of you, remember the good times and let this be a reminder that none of us know what each day will bring so appreciate what you have, let go of the little things and try to be the best you can be

  19. To the best brother anyone could have ever asked for! I still cannot believe that the good Lord took you from us so soon and in such a horrible way-no one could ever be prepared for something like that. You will be greatly missed and your family and friends will miss you terribly too. Please keep an eye on us from heaven above and hear when we speak to you in our own silence. I’ll love and miss you always. Love your sister Janet,your hunting and fishing partner Zeek and Mindy aka Mandy

    Hold tight to memories for comfort. Lean on your family & friends for strength and always remember how much you are cared about.

  22. Uncle Leo, it’s sad you had to leave us so soon. I will always remember when I was little how you would stop to pinch our (my sister’s and I) noses and tease us just to make us laugh or give us just one more push on the tire swing. I’ll never forget all the times I slept over as a teenager to babysit for Shane & Kimberly. I have many great memories of you that I will cherish for the rest of my life. May your life in heaven with Grandpa be a peaceful one. You will be greatly missed here on earth but never forgotten. I love you, your niece Denise
