    Uncle Leon will be truly missed by the entire family. Shelly says now she has no one to fish with. Leon loved his fishing trips with his family and friends.

    Love to all of his family and just know that we are there for you all. See you next Saturday.

    His loving niece Wilma

    My dad was the best.He loved to fish, hunt, camp and just loved being with family. He loved his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, grand kids very deeply.He was a man you wanted for your friend and dad. I was lucky I had both. I just know there is a hell of a pinochle game going on in heaven.

    Uncle Leon was always a happy guy. He loved all of his family. He had a special closeness with his oldest sister, Viola {Sis Robbins Markley] who was my mother.He and Jean made many trips back to Huntsville to visit her.My husband Mac and I who live in Harriman,N.Y. enjoyed several wonderful visits with him and Jean in Seattle. We will miss him greatly. May his soul rest in peace.
