Leonard enjoyed life. In his early years he played hockey on the Purdon Line team and he loved his motorcycle. He was a proud member and Past President of the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 453, Powassan. After many years of dairy farming, he worked for the East Parry Sound Board of Education as the Transportation and Safety Officer. Leonard enjoyed the cottage, his antique cars, tractors, and trips. These trips took him to both Canadian coasts, Vegas, some American states and Casino Rama. Our family will miss his sharp mind and sense of humour. Leonard was born on Powassan’s Purdon Line where he lived his entire life. Cremation has taken place. A private interment service will be held at Powassan Union Cemetery at a later date. If you wish, memorial donations to the Sick Kids Hospital are suggested.
