Brandt Samuel Leondar, 53, passed away suddenly after a brief illness Saturday, July 5, 2014. Service: A memorial service will be open to the public and will be held at 9 a.m. Friday in the Grapevine High School Auditorium, followed by a reception in the school library. Private burial: Will be held at a later date. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to one of the following: The Brandt Leondar Memorial, to provide financial assistance to Grapevine High School Mustang Band students, enabling them equal access to the music program and assisting students with marching band fees, private lessons, band trips costs and other various activities. American Diabetes Association, to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Please make a memorial donation for Brandt Leondar. Brandt S. Leondar was born Feb. 4, 1961, in Midland. He graduated from L.D. Bell High School in Hurst in May 1979. He married his high school sweetheart, LuAnne Ferguson, on May 23, 1981. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in August 1984 with a bachelor's degree in music. He rejoiced in the birth of his son, Aaron Carthel Leondar, on Feb. 23, 1991. In May 2002, he graduated from the University of North Texas with a master's degree in education. He retired in June 2014 after 30 years of teaching in public schools in Texas. Brandt's teaching career as a high school band director began in Seagraves from 1984 to 1988. He taught in Mexia 1988 to 1990, and his career at Grapevine High School began in 1990, ending this past school year in June 2014. Brandt was well loved by his students. He was committed to not only teaching students to love and aspire in music, but he was there for them on a personal level -- encouraging then in school, in life, in relationships. While Brandt struggled all of his adult life with health problems related to diabetes, he never let that slow him down, he never complained about how he felt and he always put a smile on his face! One of his favorite sayings is "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one or the few" (a Star Trek quote). He gave selflessly to meet the needs of the many, every day of his life. In retirement, Brandt had plans to learn how to bake bread, plant a garden, take trips to New York to see Broadway musicals, make up for many missed date-nights with his wife, LuAnne, and attend high school football games, marching contests and concerts as a spectator. Survivors: Wife of 33 years, LuAnne Ferguson Leondar and their son, Aaron Carthel Leondar; parents, Arnold and June Leondar of Weatherford; brother and sister-in-law, Morris and Kim Leondar and their son, Andrew, of Aledo; niece, Marissa Leondar Sauble, her husband, Brent, and their son, Kinsler; numerous extended family members and friends, including his extensive Grapevine High School family!
