So sorry to hear of Leon´s passing. I served with him in the PA Air National Guard from 71-77. Leon also was our photographer at our wedding in 1974.

My sincere condolences to all the Work family, cousins-Jimmy, Diane and Danny- and their families, but especially to dear Aunt Dodo. I am so sorry for your loss and will hold you all in my thoughts and prayers in your deep grief. My fondest memories of Uncle Leon were his fabulous and elaborate train set villages that seemed to take up the whole room and give us so much joy when we visited for family gatherings. RIP Uncle Leon XXOO

Mrs. Work and family, thinking of all you during this time. I saw Mr. Work's Funeral March on Facebook, what a beautiful tribute to him! I always remember when the Conway fire siren blew Mr. Work was in his car and up and out his driveway pronto! :)
