I got to know Leon pretty well, after having coffee on several hundred mornings at HyVee, McDonalds and Burger King.
He made my day! Will miss him!

Pam and all the rest of Leons family. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Leon. I met him years ago thru my Dad at some auction. Then years later met him again thru Pam at church things that he would come to. He was a sweet man and seemed to have a smile on his face most every time I saw him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you say your final goodbyes.
