He fought heroically without complaint even saying "better him than young children who haven't had a chance to live out their lives". In the months after his diagnosis he chose to focus on the value of each day spending quality time with family and friends.

    Born October 4, 1946 to Clarence and Marcella (Vercauteren) Vande Hei he was the second of twelve children, growing up on a dairy farm near Isaar, Wisconsin.

He later officiated wrestling for local high schools until his sons were competing.

    He married the former Margaret Hansen at St. Joseph Church in Oneida on October 29, 1966. Together they have three children and six grandchildren. On February 3, 1967 he reported for active duty with the U. S. Army with training in Texas and Arizona before being assigned to an Air Ambulance Dust-Off unit out of Fort Bragg, NC being sent to serve in Vietnam stationed at Long Binh near the Cu Chi Tunnels and Saigon.

    After service, he attended UW-Green Bay focusing on business and marketing. With his late brother-in-law, Ron Hansen, they started an auto reconditioning business opening locations in Green Bay, Appleton and Madison. He eventually closed that business and entered into auto sales and wholesaling. He also sold recreational vehicles at Adventure RV which was owned by his brother Carl.

    His passion in life was golfing with his brothers, sons, brother-in-law Dave and friends. He and Margaret took special travel vacations with the sole purpose of golf getaways. They took several cruises, traveled to Mexico annually, toured Australia, and twice visited Europe. They took a very special trip to Vietnam and Cambodia in 2014 where Leo was able to have closure for the time he served there.

    Leo was an avid card player and enjoyed cribbage, poker, bridge and Sheepshead with his buddies, family and friends.

    Survivors include wife Margaret, children James (Kristen) Illinois, Pam Wondrash, Green Bay, Craig (Tanya) Fort Atkinson; six grandchildren: Brittany, Hunter and Lauren Wondrash, Laine and Leigh Vande Hei, and Alex Vande Hei; mother Marcella Vande Hei; siblings: Anne (Ron) Farvour, Ed (Maureen) Vande Hei, Carl (Katie) Vande Hei, Elmer (Wendy) Vande Hei, Theresa (Mike) Carriveau, Gloria (Vande Hei) Buckarma, Ray (Beth) Vande Hei, Donna (Jim) Anderson, JoAnne Vande Hei, Jane (Bill) Treml; sister-in-law Jeanette (Dave) Wierer; nieces and nephews, many other relatives and friends.
