My father, Col. Jack L. Tueller, flew with Leo in WWII as part of the 508th fighter squadron. My dad is now nearly 93 years old and over the past few years he and Leo had many phone conversations about those days of courage and sheer determination to survive during the war. My father sits near me as I write this, and we pay tribute to the goodness and heroism of Leo and his outstanding service to our country. May your family be blessed.
I was blessed to have the Moons in my life and Leo and Dorothea were the heart and spirit of family. I have missed, and will continue to miss that sweet, smart and kind gentleman. Now he's flying high again with his dear Dorothea. Sending good thoughts and prayers to you all, Ginger Jones
I am loss for words because I just visited Leo a few months ago at his home and we talked about the days from the early 70's when he taught me how to Fly. He also was my private Pilot when I needed to take photos from the sky, He always was a perfect gentleman and was such a great teacher and I enjoyed knowing and talking to him this past year. He was so proud of his kids and he told me a few stories about them all when we had our last visit and I will tell you that there was no better man in our Air Force than Leo Moon. He loved his wife with all of his heart and missed her deeply.Want to thank God for letting me share some time with him in the 70's and always promised me a ride in Mr Tandy's Planes but last year when we visited he explained that it was probably a little late to take those rides and we laughed. Leo will never stop flying in Heaven and I am glad that he findly made it home to see his beautiful wife again! Thank You for being my mentor.
my prayers to the moon family. i will never forget this american hero.

Great memories of happier times and a life well lived. Thoughts and prayers to the Moon family!
I will miss all the wonderful stories of his flying,his life and friendship....I admired him immensely,and will never forget him.
Leo was a humble, loving person. Others with his accomplishments might have been hard to deal with, but Leo never bragged and was gracious to all. We had honor to square dance with Leo and Dorothea and enjoyed their company. What an example he was to his children and grandchildren and may your memories help ease your sorrow.
You & your family are in our thoughts & prayers.
Our sympathy and prayers to the Moon family. Leo is flying in the Heavens!
Our Dad flew with Leo in WWII and always felt Leo's skill got him thru the war unscathed. He was deeply grateful as are all of us to this fine man.
Thank you Bill Moon, without you I wouldn't have had the oppurnity of knowing this wonderful man, a man that is truly a hero to all of us.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your siblings on your loss.
