    You’ll always be our Uncle Leo.

    I’m so sorry Margie, Josh and Jake and your families. I remember you little guys in Davis Square. Your dad is and always will be my friend. I love him. He was one of those guys, not many left, my dad and Walshy among a very few others. He was so gracious to me when I went through a tough time, Oh god how Laureen loved him too.

    Leo.. I’ll never forget the kind, funny and timely words you had for me then. Rest In Peace. I’ll miss you.

    Sorry for you loss. Leo was a funny guy he made activities at the nursing home funny. He always had the answers for the trivia questions. May he rest in pease.

    Margie, Josh, Jake and Family- I am so sorry for your loss…. I have such fond memories of Leo, from the days of South Medford Youth Baseball, up to High School, where Leo would make us the best Superbowl wings every year!….
