May God bless you and your...
Dec 25, 1924 – Apr 3, 2019
Joseph was born on December 25, 1924 and passed away on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. Joseph was a resident of Texas at the time of passing. He was raised in Cleburne, Texas with his five siblings and graduated from Cleburne High School in 1942 while the world was at war. Without hesitation, Joe enlisted in the United States Army as a Combat Infantryman in May of 1943 at the tender age of 18. He waved goodbye to his family (an event Joe would recall to be heartbreaking) and boarded a troop train headed west for basic training in San Luis Obispo, California. The memorial service will begin at one o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, the 13th of April, at Liberty Church of Christ, 3201 North Main, Liberty, Texas. Burial will be at Cooke Cemetery, 1906 Lakeland Drive, Liberty, Texas. Visitation at the Allison Funeral Service Chapel from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on April 12, 2019. As Joe would say, "blessings shared are not divided but multiplied." So, in lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests memorial contributions be directed to the Liberty ISD Education Foundation, attention M.J. "Joe" Leonard Endowment, P.O. Box 10437, Liberty, Texas 77575 or the Liberty Church of Christ, 3201 N. Main St, Liberty, Texas.
