Leo was a proud graduate of the faculty of Applied Science (Civil Engineering) at Queens University, Kingston in 1959. He was an avid curler, golfer and Scotch connoisseur. He will forever be remembered for his generous spirit, sense of humor, willingness to lend a helping hand and making a positive impact on the lives of those he touched.
The family would also like to thank the medical team at St. Joesph’s Hospital, CTU 5MG and the exemplary care and compassion he received from all staff, especially nurses Meghan and Josh. We will forever be grateful.
