Erma and Mary Kate we are so sad to learn of Uncle Leonard's passing. He will be remembered with great affection and respect. We always enjoyed every minute we spent in his company and admired his joy and kindness. Please know that you will both be in our prayers.

The Parks were the greatest next door neighbors ever. I am so sorry for your loss, Erma and Mary Kate.

Leonard was a soil fertility/plant nutrition mentor to me and other young agronomists and county agents at Clemson. I have many wonderful memories of farm field days and meetings where he shared his vast knowledge and experiences with attendees. He had a keen sense of humor and a true pleasure to work with. He was devoted to his family - Erma and Mary Kate - and loved them dearly. Kate and I offer prayers and peace.

our sympathy to Erma and Mary Kate. I worked with Dr. Parks in Clemson Extension for 30 years. I always admired his dedication to his family. We will praying that God will comfort you during the difficult days ahead. sincerely, Jack and Martha Ruff.

I will always remember how mr. Parks pushed Mary Kate to every event held in clemson. Another great clemson heights resident has gone to a better place.

Our love and prayers go to you, Erma and Mary Kate. The Georgion family has valued your friendship for over 40 years and we will miss our visits with Leonard. The Parks family were wonderful neighbors to us and we have been blessed to continue to have you as friends. Leonard will be greatly missed. Hopefully he has found my dad and mom and they are now sharing Clemson stories! Love to you both. Rosalind and Mike Georgion
