He retired from General Motors after 30 years of dedicated employment. Leon enjoyed spending times outdoors, hunting, fishing, tending to his gardening, and tinkering in the garage.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel on Sunday, October 11th from 4-8 PM.

*** Due to the current restrictions on social gatherings, a visitation in the traditional sense where people would gather together and visit for long periods of time is not permitted. However, it is important to Leon's family that there is an opportunity for family and friends to enter the funeral home briefly and pay their final respects.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, October 12th at 11 AM at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel in Lapeer. Pastor Ed Chandler will officiate. Interment at West Deerfield Cemetery will immediately follow.
