Leo enjoyed having a mixed farm and its challenges.  He was proud to be on the farm for its Centennial.  In later years, Leo farmed with his son Dean, finally retiring in his mid-80’s. Leo was an active volunteer throughout his life, he always said, if you want something done, you must go to the meetings.  He served on the Glen Bain RM as Counsellor and Reeve, during his time there he had an impact on bringing 911 to Saskatchewan.  He was a director for the Southwest Transportation committee on behalf of many local RM's.  In the local community, Leo was director, then President of the Meyronne Credit Union, on the Meyronne Co-op Board, Meyronne Fire Board and was part of the committee to build the bowling lanes onto the Meyronne Hall.  Leo was an active member of the Knight of Columbus and the treasurer for St. Elizabeth Church for many years. When he and Marilyn moved to Swift Current in 1990, he was an active part of the Catholic Community in Swift Current.  Leo enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling, playing cards, completing puzzles and crosswords. In his younger years, he enjoyed singing and playing guitar. He will be remembered for his leadership, his smile, his integrity and his kind nature.
