    What can you say about a man who lead such a great life shared with Family and Friends ! Honor, integrity, love, compassion, and knowledge to name few. A man who enjoyed life, it's experiences, and even a Twinkie or two till the very end.  A man who bent over backwards helping his customers at the furniture store - he knew what customer service was. Even till this day when I mention the furniture store, people comment oh I bought my furniture there and still have it.  A man who loved golf and traveled to play various courses around the US with the love of his life Alice.  A man who loved music and even though he sold his instruments still talked about the desire to play.   Uncle Leonard thank you for the everything!  I miss you.  RIP you led an awesome life !
