    I am so sorry for your loss. No words can take away the pain of losing a loved one, but please know that God is with you during this difficult time… I hope it brings you some comfort knowing that your beloved Leon is in a deep sleep, in peace (1 Thessalonians 4:13,14).
    Please trust in God’s promise, that we will not be going through this forever; suffering, getting sick, growing old, and dying. There is a hope that God has promised us! Revelation 21:3,4

    Cindy & Family,
    It was a pleasure and distinct honor to work along side Leon for thirteen years at Noramco. His work ethic and attention to detail was an example that I’ve tried to emulate in my own career. We often spoke about his love of music, Philadelphia sports, and our respective families. I enjoyed our many conversations and will think fondly on my memories of Leon. I would also like to extend my apologies for not attending the services in person as I am out of the country. My deepest condolences to the family.

    Sorry to hear of Leon’s passing. I worked with him for 17 years and always appreciated his assistance. May he rest in peace.

  • By Vernon Jefferies on

    Leon was a very considerate person and he loved doing an excellent job. I had the opportunity to wok with him for a number of years, and never did he try not to be fair in his judgment of people he worked with. Cindy just as stated in the obit, he loved his family and he loved seafood (esp crabs). May God’s grace be with you as you continue. He is gone, but never forgotten.
