Mr. Leo was a great man. He gave all for family, country, community, and church. For the past 25 years, Mr. Leo would go in the woods the week before Holy Week, cut palms for Palm Sunday and bring them to me. I would wash and cut them, then deliver them to church. Mr. Leo has been providing St. Leo Church with the palms for Palm Sunday since Fr. Rez, at least 50 years. Most people don’t know this. Mr. Leo was active in the St. Leo Holy Name Society, Boy Scout Troop 118, the list goes on. Our nation sorely needs men like him. Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Rez and Mr. Leo O Lord.

Our deepest sympathy to all of the family of Mr. Leo. It was an honor to be around him at the Military Functions. We were honored to be around him, another veteran of The Greatest Generation. It's a title not many can claim. My father, Clarence W. "Buddy" Tate, was one of those. He served in WWII, a Marine and survivor of Iwo Jima. He passed away on Jan. 4th, 2020. I understand your pain, but be assured I am praying for each of you. God Bless.

I only met Mr Leo a few times and enjoyed his company. More than once Jim Gros wanted to bring me over to see Leo’s memory room. My father, Willie Thousand, was a great admirer of Leo and he was the one who introduced us years ago. I know that he’s in a good place and I’m sorry he’s not there with you but he’s watching all of you?
