    Leo spent most of his life in Elkhart, Indiana.  During his younger years, Leo enjoyed bowling on the league he was a part of in Indiana.  He was a machinist and machine repair man.  Leo worked for Miles Laboratory until retiring to Ocala, Florida.  Leo spent many years fishing and helping his neighbors fix their places up.  Leo enjoyed hunting, fishing, NASCAR and gardening.  Although Leo had many hobbies, fishing was his passion.

We will all miss the numerous phone calls we had with our dad and grandpa.
