Leonard was born in Bonnyville, AB and grew up on a farm a few miles out of town. When he married Doreen, they stayed in Bonnyville for a while, then moved to Edmonton. He lived a good life, eventually allowing him to work in foreign countries and moving his family overseas three times. His heart remained in Bonnyville, where his greatest accomplishment was registering the Bear Trap Community Cemetery across the road from his childhood home.
He was a loving husband and father, and Grandpa, without him, his grandchildren would not be able to read, write, tell time or tie their shoes. Life lessons were learned by all. Leonard will be missed by those that knew him.
