Leon was my boss, once removed, when I worked for his Assistant, Marianne Skelton from 1981 until September of 1983. I was the Engineering Department file clerk at OXY in Bakersfield, California on Stockdale Highway.

I remember making two birthday cakes for Leon's office celebrations. The first year I created a golf course with a 3-D frosting figure down on his hands and knees trying to blow the ball into the hole. The flag was lying on the "ground" next to the figure, and Leon said it must have been set in Aberdeen where the wind blew everything flat. The following year,fun for Leon was all about is Apple personal computer (a product that was pretty new on the scene at that time). So, I built him a life sized Apple computer out of cake and frosting!

Ann, I met you a few times when you came by the office. The instance I remember most clearly was when you stopped in to pick up Christmas cards that had been sent to the OXY address. One of those cards was from the singing group "The Three Degrees." I was so impressed!

I also house sat for you and Leon a few times, which included taking care of what Leon called his "pup dogs." You had a larger dog and three dachshunds - a mother and two of her offspring. When I would lie on the couch in your den to watch HBO (a real delight for me since I didn't even have cable television at my house), all three of those "weiner dogs" would jump onto the couch and snuggle with me. But then one of them would bark at me if I looked at her, and one of the others would snap at me if I moved:-) That must be why, to this day, I can sit through two or three consecutive movies without flinching!

I was thinking about my days at OXY this afternoon and decided to Google Leon. And that search sadly led me to his obituary. Ann, I am so sorry you've lost Leon. When he came to OXY Bakersfield, he brought with him his booming cheerful voice, his big warm heart, his welcoming spirit, and his sense of humor. I appreciated him while I was at OXY and have thought of him often over the years. There are just some people who are easy to love, and you never forget them. My sincere sympathy to you, your children and grandchildren. I wish you God's comfort and peace. -Carey

Leon had a huge heart and a smile that lit up a board room. He is a huge loss to all who knew him.

It was a pleasure working with Leon at Oxy. He always gave willingly of his time and expertise. I have many fond memories of him.

Leon was a great guy and will be missed. His wit, charm and intellect was apparent to anyone who ever met him.
