Leon was at the helm of Tacoma teachers for many years so he was well known here; but many may not know how popular Leon was at NEA General Assemblies. His campaigns for NEA leadership positions were electric: rousing songs, silly hats and of course, Leon's favorite quotes of Frederick Douglas. Teachers from every State knew Leon. But my favorite memory of Leon is of him bringing me a bouquet of flowers on my 40th birthday. He was always a gentleman.

Leon Horne was a life-long learner. Though he held high-level positions in the National Education Association, he was modest and never self aggrandizing. Rather than politic at conferences, he spent more time in the actual workshops than "any" NEA elected official I have ever known. I always made mention of that every time I saw him for close to 3 decades. Leon was a gentleman, friend, and a fierce advocate for public education.
He really cared about the education of students and the welfare of school personnel. He was a champion, and with his passing there is a void in public education.
As a member of the NEA staff, I always knew where he stood on every issue, and I knew he had the backs of everyone involved in Human and Civil Rights.

Our sympathies to his family.

My heart and thoughts go out to Mr. Horne's family and friends. I have very fond memories of being in Mr. Horne's 5th grade class at Manitou Elementary School in 1974-75. I am grateful for his influence in my life!
