Born in Shreveport, La., on 4-10-37, to Isaac and Lizzie Coleman, Leonard was the youngest of 13 children. After four years of Naval service, Leonard had a successful career in the aviation industry from 1959 until his retirement in 2003. He ended his career at L.A. Air Force base as a configuration manager on the GPS Program. The only thing Leonard loved more than his work was his retirement. He had a passion for golf and was a regular with the B.A.J.A. Sporting Club in Green Valley. Leonard, Vicki and their two dogs also spent five wonderful years traveling in their motor home. Leonard loved life, a good political argument, and most of all his family and many dear friends in Green Valley and California. His was a life well-lived.
