With great sadness we announce Leo passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Thursday, May 25th, 2023.
Leo is survived by his cherished wife and best friend, Paula, who shared countless beautiful moments and memories throughout their lives together. He was a loving father to his son Steve (Francine) and daughter Cindy (Andrew). Leo’s devotion to his family was unwavering and he held a special place in his heart for his grandchildren, Adam, Steffi, Matthew, Nicholas and Nathan. He will be missed by his sister-in-law Karen, nephew Vincent, niece Laura (Brandon) and great nephew Isaac. He will also be missed by many family and friends.

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.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Wellwood Cancer Resource Center of Hamilton.

My condolences to you in the passing of Leo. The shared memories will always be with you.
Although I had not seen Leo since the 1980’s when we were members of the Thistle Club, I have fond memories of those days of curling and friendship with Leo and others who comprised what was a special group in special times.
I am sorry to learn that he has passed and my thoughts are with his family and close friends at this time.
I first met Leo & Paula at the Brantford Golf & Country Club St Pats Bonspiel. They won many times but did triumph aganist them once. It was our first event win in the Bonspiel.
I then Transfered to Dundas Valley Curling Club which of course was Leo ‘s club and played aganist him many times there. Leo was always a class competitor. It was at Dundas Valley that I invited Leo to the Companion of Quaich for a scotch tasting. Leo enjoyed it so much that he stayed a member to his death
It is with great sadness that I read of Leo’s passing. My thoughts are with you and your family Paula at this most difficult time.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Leo’s passing. There are many fond memories of Leo when working at the CAA and later as friends. I have Leo to thank for connecting me with Paula not only personally but also my profession at Mohawk College. Rest in Peace Leo.
Paula, may the sorrow you feel in your heart lighten by the love that surrounds you.
Sending healing prayers, love and comforting hugs.
