    We did not know him long, but knew of him from two of his sisters , Eve and Helen our friends. The few times we met him we just immideately felt comfortable and wanted to be his friend. Leonard was a very quiet and soft spoken gentleman and we were proud to know him. May he rest in peace.

    I never knew this man but he is my biological grandfather. I came accross this while looking for my biological mother debra and wanted to say RIP and that I am sorry I never got to meet him. I am sure he was a great man.

    This is a few years late, I know that, but I had just found this and wanted to pay my respects to fellow family members. I am one of his granddaughters. My biological mother is Debra. I still can’t believe he’s gone, but all good things must go to magnificent places. May he Rest In Peace.
