I am so very sorry for your loss. Leonard was a wonderful man and will

Dear Johnna and Family,
I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Leonard.
He was a sweet person. One thing stands out in my memory of him. He
was working on our fence one day and a stranger that was walking on the
highway stopped at the house and I was home with the kids and Larry
was gone. Leonard noticed the stranger and came up to the house
immediately to be my protector. The man had run out of gas and we gave
him gas and sent him on his way but I appreciated the way Leonard
helped me that day. He was like that. He liked to help people.
My prayers are with you and the kids.
Johna-John-Terry We cannot express the sympathy that we have for you
in words. Knowing Leonard changed my life[not always for the good]but
for the things he taught how to do. We always had a lot of fun working
together, The talks we had will always remain with me. It was an honor
for me to known a person of his kind. Wither it was talking of his
troubles or mine we could share it. My heart goes out to you all. Our
prayers are with you- John-Terry and the grand kids. Love you all.
Bill and Glenda Lalman

Our deepest condolences to Johna and all the family and friends. Know
that our thoughts are with you. It is rare that someone can touch so many
lives, so deeply, for so long. Treasure those times and memories and he
will live on in your hearts forever. Love you all, Rick, Mona, Aluria and
The world is at a loss without Leonard a giving, caring, funny person.
Leonard was one of my first baseball coaches, along with Robin Reeves
and Randy Hessong. I never, ever had a better time playing baseball.
Leonard was a huge reason why. God bless him and your family in your
time of loss.
Dear Johna, John and Terri, I am so sorry for your loss, Leonard meant
more to us guys that played ball for him in the summer time than most can
ever imagine. He was truly a great guy, coach and friend.
I’m sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. My
deepest sympathies are with you and your family at this time of grieving.
Johnna & Teri,
We were saddened to hear about Leonard! There are many memories that
we have of him throughout the years and know that heaven is a better
place. We can only imagine how happy my dad (Richard) was to get to
talk with Leonard again:).
We apologize for the delayed message.
