Heartfelt thank you to Dr. Paul Ziter and family for their years of care. The family is grateful to the practices of Drs. Bagga, McLarty, Nour, Saad and the many other medical professionals who kept Leo with us over all the years. Leo received exceptional care that went above and beyond from his kind-hearted team of in-home care providers. Thank you to Fr. Mike Parent for his support.

A private pilot for many years, Leo loved the sky. His fifth child was his airplane and he held fond memories of working on the Spitfire alongside Jerry Billings.
