My sincere sympathy to the family on the passing of Leo. I am privileged to have met Leo many years ago when I started dating Mary Ellen Glidden. He would drop in to the Glidden home frequently and always brought a friendly disposition and word with him. Leo and Pat hosted my “bachelor party” in the upstairs room of their home. In the morning, I learned that we made quite a lot of noise late into the night and that Leo told Pat to leave us alone, that we were just having fun. You can imagine how surprised I was to learn that one of my co-workers many years ago in Beaverton, Oregon, Clarence Schanke, had grown up across the road from the Bohlman’s in Lesterville. What a small world that is a better place for having had Leo for 89 years.

Mike and Di-my thoughts and prayers are with you both.
Leo was one of a kind, I’ll never forget the time he spent with me and my family after Dad died. I remember spending one morning with him checking traps.
One of a kind,
Rest In Peace Leo....
