    Pat and the family would like to offer their sincere thanks to everyone at St. Paul Elder Services for the extra-special care that Leon received while there. The doctors, nurses, hospice staff, and all of the other caregivers were so kind, loving, and compassionate. Our grateful family will never forget all that you have done for us.

    All will remember Leon as a handy man who could fix just about anything. He was kind to the elderly and also loved children. Playing Santa Claus to the neighbor children was a favorite annual activity. He also loved to play cards or sharing a meal with loved ones and talking about "old times". Most of all, he dedicated himself to his family, his friends, and his God.
  • Graduation: He graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1946.
