Taken from us on that awful day Oct.17, 2010 was a quiet, gentle spirit. Leo welcomed us all into his life and his heart with open arms. He didn’t pass judgment, nor give focus to our limitations, or worry about labels that other’s put on us. He appreciated our aptitudes, overlooked our flaws, and loved us anyway.

When you lose a child, there is a part of your heart that goes with them. We ache for his presence on a daily basis. We miss Leo’s big smile, friendly, fun and loving spirit. We long to hear him play his music on the piano, violin, guitar, drums, or harmonica. We know he is at peace, safe and happy in his heavenly home. God blessed us with Leo for 22 wonderful years and we will live out his memory until that day we are reunited.

Leo was well known for his music. He made a difference in this world with his interest in electrical engineering and renewable energy. Leo’s talent, ethics, and kindness of spirit characterized both the person Leo was and how he lived his life. He was a giving person and there was never a question in his mind that he would be an organ/tissue donor. Leo is sadly missed, and held deeply in our hearts.
