Leon was a loving husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed spending time with his family.  Leon was a very hard worker and spent the majority of his life farming near Southey. He was a great curler in his younger days and was an avid “sports” father cheering on his children in their sports activities including softball, hockey and curling. He loved farm life, animals and the great outdoors and was still out in the tractor and on the combine in his mid eighties. A Private Celebration of Life for family and close friends will be held.
