farm, he loved every minute of it. He had cows and chickens and always
planted a beautiful garden; his farm was his little piece of
heaven on earth. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and
everyone knew if they needed anything he was there. Leo was
a very kind and gentle man who had a heart of gold and loved to laugh.
He will be remembered for his smile and his great sense of humour, and
his jolly disposition. He was an inspiration and role model
for his family and friends. May his legacy of love and kindness live
on in the hearts of all who knew him. » Rest In Peace
with God and Nature. »
