Deepest Sympathy to him and his family, Leon I had the deepest honor to read "The Boy on The Wooden Box" which was probably the most touching emotionally empowering book I have ever read. You were an amazing part of history and may God welcome you with open arms

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
