Leo's life experiences were numerous. He was a World War II Purple Heart recipient. He was proud to have worked with NASA on Apollo 11-13 space missions. He felt privileged to teach math to hundreds of Detroit students over the years. However, what was most meaningful to Leo was sharing his life for 55 years with his wife, Harriett, raising four kind & generous children, and passing on his knowledge, love, and laughter to his many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family, and friends.
