To Shirley, Danny, Donna and the families:
Leo was a kind, funny and caring man. He was a great family man and a wonderful contributor to the St. Andrews community.
He was an incredibly resilient man who in the end could not resist the calling to the card table in heaven from Mary, Brenda and Pat.
Liam and Kristen, you're in our heartfelt thoughts at this time.
Our condolences to all of you.

Doug, Alice and the Wheeler family

I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Leo’s passing. I remember him always having a great story to tell. If you didn’t believe in the ghost of John L. , you certainly did after being convinced by Leo! Our condolences to the Spence Family.
Patti (Hynes) and Craig Sauer
