I hadn't seen him in years. There are few truly good men. He was one.I truly looked up to him. I feel sorrow for his families loss, and joy for the time they spent with him.
Connie and family...I just heard of Leo's passing and send my sincere condolences to you all.
Grandpa, I will miss you everyday. You meant the world to me. I am so grateful for everything you did for us kids growing up and even as adults. I will see you in heaven.
It was my great good fortune to work for Leo in the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, where he was a model for public service: fair, decent, hard-working, totally honest, humble, and compassionate. He modernized that office with technology, specialization, and consistency. He put a new priority on children's and family issues and on victims of crime. He hired and promoted female attorneys to a degree not previously seen in prosecutors' offices. He professionalized his Bureau of Investigation. He maintained his office's traditions of being vigorous and apolitical. A rare and truly fine man.
To my wonderful Godfather; Thank You for being a strong influence in my life. To my Wonderful Godmother; My prayer and thoughts are with you. Much love, Jon Dee Wright
