Our condolences, Leon was more than a good friend and good neighbor, he and Rita always made us feel so welcome. Leon was truly part of the greatest generation and what helped made America great! We will miss him.

I worked with Leon many years ago in the Outlet co. - what a man! I wish I had half the guts he had. A great role model for me. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to have met such a brave and dedicated man - more of what this world needs today!

May you find peace in your loving memories and in the warmth of family and friends.

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about the loss of CSM Leon Francis Dobridnia. He gave his life for freedom and his legacy will never be forgotten. Please know that we are thinking of you and your family during this time of sorrow.

Mr. Dobridnia has always been "Gramps" to me. I always appreciated how both Gramps and Gram treated me as one of their own Grandkids growing up. I will always have fond memories of Gram bringing the 4 of us to Crescent park carousel and out to lunch. I always share memories of arriving at dawn in Bristol on the 4th of July on Fort Hill Road and waiting for the parade to start. Enjoying the Bagels that Gramps would fetch from town and the privilege of being able to walk back...

Ms. Corey, your Dad is a hero and remember he always loves you. Hand salute to a felloe Veteran.

I served with CSGM Dobridnia in the 11th SF Group. He was a great leader and, had the respect of all the officers and enlisted men.

Godspeed SGM. "AIRBORNE"


So very sorry for your loss...

Corey, your grandfather was a true American hero! God bless you and your family in this time of sadness. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
