Obituary Condolences

Leo E.
Remp, Jr.
Leo E. Remp, Jr., age 75, longtime resident of the Sandy Creek and Pulaski area, passed away Thursday at the VA Medical Center in Syracuse. Leo was born May 19, 1938, in Hartford, CT, the son of Leo E. and Bridget Cullina Remp, Sr. He graduated from Sandy Creek High School in 1956 and Mohawk Valley Community College in 1963. He served in the United States Navy from 1957 until 1961. Leo married Darlene VanBrocklin Remp on August 12, 1967, and she passed away February 6, 1979. He was employed by Niagara Mohawk Power Co. and retired after 25 years. Leo was a member of the Masonic Lodge #564 in Sandy Creek and the Royal Order of Jester's, serving as director in 1997, and the Sandy Pond Sportsman's Club. He was also a highly active member of the Watertown Media Shriner's and the Transportation and Motor Patrol. He gave much of his personal time and expended much effort to assure the ongoing successful operation of the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children located in Montreal, because Leo knew intimately the problems of the crippled child. Years ago, Leo was injured in an auto accident that left him without the use of his legs. He served on the Board of Directors for six years at the Montreal Unit, traveling from Pulaski to Canada each month to attend meetings. Leo also traveled back and forth frequently to his second home in Ocala, FL. Surviving are one sister, Jeannette Remp Sawyer, of Boonville, and good friends, Butch and Diane Manwaring and John Bigelow, all of Sandy Creek, and Michael Scott and Joni Scott, of Pulaski. Leo was predeceased by one brother, Albert L. Remp, who died in 1995; a sister-in-law, Iris Hutton Remp, who died in 1997; and a niece, Diane Remp, who died in 1961. Funeral services will be held 3 p.m., Friday, April 18, at Foster-Hax Funeral Home, 52 Park Street, Pulaski, NY, with burial in Westernville Cemetery. Calling hours will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. prior to the service. A Masonic service will be held at 12:30 p.m. prior to the start of calling hours. Donations may be made to Media Shriner's Transportation Fund, Media Shriner's, PO Box 261, Watertown, NY 13601.
