Leon graduated from Greer Technical College in Chicago. Leon was a maintenance supervisor at Allied Locke Industries, where he worked from 1969 until his retirement in 2009. In his retirement, he worked part time at Davinci Powder Coating. He was a member of the Green River Saddle Club, Janesville Kiwanis Club, and Martin Town Community Church. Leon was a talented woodworker and enjoyed spending time in his workshop. He was always fixing things, building a piece of furniture or creating a piece of art. He was a loving, gentle and humble man of humble means. He enjoyed life wholeheartedly and was quite the social butterfly. He was also a prankster and had his own innocuous sense of humor that would, and will always, bring smiles to those who knew him. He adored his family, friends and especially his wife, Jean, of 42 years. Leon and Jean were inseparable, always taking day trips together to enjoy the scenery and the great local fare. Leon’s main concern in life was the welfare of his children and especially the welfare of his wife, up until the very end of his time in this world.
