Leon “Lee” was born April 17, 1934 in Corning, NY. He married Gerri on April 27, 1957 and enjoyed 61 years of marriage. He was teacher to many, passing on his incredible knowledge and skills for mechanics and woodworking. He could rebuild any engine, and in his barn built a street rod from the first bolt to the last finishing details, complete with flames on the doors. He took pride in his home, especially his lawn, and never missed a day of clipping the grass to perfection. He will be remembered by many as a father, a friend, an artist, and a teacher.
Services will be held at the convenience of the family.
