Condolence From: Helen Turner
Condolence: It was such a shock when I heard about Leon. He was my mentor in construction and taught me a lot. I will really miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Condolence: I lived a few doors from Leon growing up. Leon was two years ahead of me at Roosevelt and a big brother in some ways. He got me some of my first jobs mixing drywall mud and parking cars at the Seattle Center. Leon had a good work ethic and saw the integrity in people, which was beneficial for growing boys. Though the years we bumped into one another but, drifted apart, which I regret. God Bless Leon and his family.

Condolence: Leon was a strong supporter of his high school class, participating in many reunion planning events and offering continued support to our gatherings. We will miss his enthusiasm and bold support. He leaves behind many friends who enjoyed being in his company.
