Leonard was one of a kind and he was just an all around good guy. When we served on Village Council together, Leonard was always the voice of common sense and he had a well rounded perspective, taking everyone into consideration when making up his mind about something. Leonard was never afraid to break from the crowd and form his own opinion, in fact he always formed his own opinion. He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed his sarcasm. He shared wisdom from his own life experiences, which was appreciated. It seemed like he was the neighborhood caretaker, a lot of people knew they could always count on Leonard if they needed something. We were doing a house reno in Bawlf and when I told Leonard this, he offered his help (I knew nothing about pretty much everything I was doing for the reno) without being asked or giving me a hard time about being green at this home reno thing. He taught me how to mud and tape, how to do some basic electrical among many other things. I still think of him every time I pull out my mud tray or replace a light fixture and the things he taught me. I actually still have one of his wire strippers that I accidentally ended up with. Leonard was a teacher and a good friend. We will miss you Leonard. Lori and Tatum, we are so sorry for your loss.
Pat & I would like to send our deepest condolences to the whole family. Watching online right now as family and friends remember a man, husband, father, grandfather & friend. Leonard touch so many lives in different ways while he was here with us. He will be missed. Pat & Marilyn Ponech
