Leo's life has always been one of faith, service  to others and a firm commitment to all things that he chose to undertake, He stood fast on his beliefs and set an example for others by his wise ways. He used his life long passion for gardening to bring delight to those who stopped by his house to gather tomatoes or ship a few clippings from many flowering bushes. As of recent, at his apartment at Heritage Place, he continued  to brighten the day of the residents with his colorful, seasonal window boxes and planters. He would place these throughout the buildings and patios " To make it look like home." His warm smile and encouraging demeanor will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.
