His story remains with me: I once had the honor to hear him speak. One could tell that he had a beautiful soul. His is a story of overcoming trauma with grace and dignity. My sincere condolences to his family. Shalom.

Rest in peace Mr. Leyson, my high school machine shop teacher for 3 years at Huntington Park High School, what you showed me i still do to this day at the very same place for 36 years, only recently did i learn of your passing and your life story and just for the first time saw the movie to learn more about it, i am for ever grateful to you and now wonder how all that affected your life has affected mine.
Thank you Mr.Leyson, Class of 1979
May the god of comfort be a source of strength for your family at this difficult time. 2Corn 1:3, 4. Deepest Sympathy, Sue, Concord, NC
May God welcome him with open arms!
My father, Sol Swack, used to play tennis with Leon. Dad (now 90) absolutely loved him-would always talk about him, and would always add "he's a great guy". And he told me all about his story (which I also read in a book about the Jews rescued by Schindler). May he rest in peace.
MAY GOD ALMIGHTY BE WITH YOU AT THIS TIME."I-I MYSELF AM THE ONE THAT IS COMFORTING YOU PEOPLE....~G~

God bless you and your loved ones ~ Rest in peace.
I pray God's mercy and grace cover this family. What a life Mr. Leyson has lived. Surely God spared him to tell his story as it is obvious in this reading he had a loving heart and shared warmth. The Holocost always interested me as my father fought in the war and we would watch those movies. When watching Schindler's list I could only cry. I pray the world never forgets the Holocost because of the tremendous loss and hopefully it would never happen again to any generation. I would love to have met Mr. Leyson. What a REWARD he now has.....
To the Family: May Leon's blessed memory sustain you for all time. I will say the mourner's Kaddish for him.
What a terrible thing to allow the Hollocaust to happen. I am always so sadden by these events that took place and still now feel the effects just like slavery. Rest in peace Mr. Lesson until its time to reunite with your family.
May you find peace and everlasting joy. God be with you and your family
To the Leyson family my deepest condolences. At this difficult time, may you draw close to God and he will draw close to you. James 4:8
Dear Family of Mr.Leon Leyson, I read with interest Mr. Leyson's obituary because I never knew he existed. But I have heard of the Holocaust and the horrible things that took place. Yet when I look at your fathers face I don't see hatred but a look of peace. May you also have peace knowing that all the nightmares have stopped for he is resting asleep as John 11:11 describes death.There will be a time when there will be no hatred and war. It will come. May this thought comfort you as it does me.
I remember his story in the Shoah Foundation, May the family find Peace and God Bless them all.
Rip you truely sound like a humble man
I am going to work on being a better person
Sorry for the loss of Leon. God bless him and all the family.
What a wonderful man. Several years ago Mr. Leyson was our guest speaker in Prescott at "Days of Remembrance." May your legacy of a life well lived be learned by all!

May your light shine on in the hearts of your loved ones. Rest in Peace.
