He worked as an office manager and bookkeeper for several local businesses, retiring in 2015. He was a lover and collector of all music and attended hundreds of live performances. He enjoyed taking vacations all over the Eastern Seaboard with his wife, especially to Cape Cod. Leo appreciated nature and loved all animals, especially dogs. He is survived by his beloved wife of 25 years, Maria Purvis; brother, Michael Purvis; uncle, Edward (Marie) Dempsey; sisters-in-law, Nancy (Robert) Cervera and Geraldine (Stan) Rogowicz; and several cousins.
