I am very sorry to hear of Leon's passing. He was a wonderful friend to me and I always loved him dearly! We had a lot of fun times in the old days when he was practicing medicine and I was always hanging out with Chris Davoli and Leon ! I was able to speak to him a few times in the last year and I am so glad I did! He was a great guy and friend and a loving father.

We are so heartbroken to have lost our dearest friend. He was the most caring, loving man. He was such a wonderful caring doctor. Sometimes the wait was long, but we knew we would receive the same loving care. We're so grateful that he came here to see Joey and stay with us. We truly enjoyed him and had planed on more. God Bless you Leon
