Leo was a 1967 graduate of Kenton High School. Immediately following high school, Leo joined the United States Marine Corps,  serving from 1967 to 1969 in Vietnam.

Leo enjoyed being outdoors and being on the water. He loved to bass fish, catfish and sit on Indian Lake ice fishing when he was able. He loved spending time with his family and friends and especially his grandkids and great-grandkids. He also enjoyed sitting and watching Fox News so he could complain. He will truly be missed by his loving dog, Annie, who was always by his side.  

Memorial donations in Leo’s honor may be made to the Amvets Post 1994 in Kenton.
