Always appreciated his sense of humor. A dedcated student achieving a pharmacy degree.
May he rest in peace.
Leo was very much a part of our class, probably many of mine. Along with being smart, he could dress fashionably and make humorous, succinct comments. He was the same on our last time together, probably 1988, at St. Laborius Catholic Church, north of downtown. He told me about his life with a smile.
Leo, you knew how to talk to us, like you wanted to do that more than anything, in that moment, and have some joy about it. I looked for you for months, to invite you to our 2011 class reunion. Where were you? I hope that you are visiting with your loved ones and our classmates in the "hereafter" now. God love you!
ONE OF MY FIRST FRIENDS FRESHMEN YEAR. RODE MY BIKE FROM IHM TO SSMJ. ITS ALWAYS FUNNY THAT YOU DONT APPRECIATE FRIENDS UNTIL THEY ARE GONE. HAD CHANCES TO HANG WITH LEO OVER THE YEARS AND HARDLY DID. WELL MY LOSS.
Leo was bouncing with comic relief one day, while the teacher was away from our classroom. He wrote GSA (Gas Station Attendant) on the black board. He was laughing, as there was some private joke or board game that someone understood, like he aspired to become a GSA, with the white uniform and hat. Mike Badgley seemed to know the joke. Funny as it seems, the thought came to me on New Year's Day. It was good, clean lighthearted fun.
