So sorry to hear of the passing of Leo. Brian Keith & I saw him on the Murray float in the Lucknow Reunion parade last year. He was a great patriarch. Our families visited back & forth playing cards for the adults & hide & seek for the kids. Jim & I were in school together from Grade 1 and Murray and Marilyn were in school together too and in the Gord Cayley band and Goderich Laketown Band. My sincere sympathy. Sandra

Sharon Stewart - 2019-10-10 14:25:33

I am so saddened to hear of the loss of a Leo.  I grew up with Leo being my neighbour and definitely my dear friend.  He helped me in so many ways.  From helping me when I lost my mom and sharing my passion for horses.  I remember every Thursday night he would hook a double team of horses up to the wagon and I would hook a single horse to the cart and we were off.

Mark Becker - 2019-10-10 09:45:48

Please accept my sincere condolences to all of Leo's family.  Leo was one of a kind and I always enjoyed running into him or having a visit with him, especially when he had a mickey of Whiskey and a small bottle of Pepsi to have a toast.  When we did visit he always spoke about all of his kids and what they were up to, so I want you to know, he was very proud of all of you.  I have alot of good memories of Leo going back to when he was Deputy Reeve, and in the years that followed, as a good friend.  I know he is with "mom" (Imelda) now, so I know that he is kicking off those cowboy boots that he used to wear and relaxing.  Rest in piece my friend.

KellyMackie - 2019-10-10 09:25:54

My sincere condolences to all.  I truly believe Leo, Imelda and Dad And Mom (Russ and Gail) are all looking down on us and smiling and of course starting up their Card games again.
