So sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Leo and Ruth were the best of neighbors. Their daughters were some of my best friends growing up and I can't imagine my childhood without the Blahas. Leo always took the time to talk to me. He made our shared history of Howard County come alive. That passion of history remains with me today. The roadtrip I took with the Blaha family to Yankton remains one of my fondest high school memories. I still cherish the Saint Christopher medal Leo and Ruth gave me for my car after my high school graduation. It has always been present in all of my cars. Thank you, Blaha family.
Leo was an integral part of St. Paul and of Howard County. The community of St. Paul has lost an icon, and the family of Leo has lost an outstanding member who will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him. My sincere sympathy on the loss of this great man.
