I am so sorry to hear about this. Leo was a great guy and a good friend. He was a regular to all west shows and a definite to our Northern California meetings. My condolences to his family and friends.

Sad to hear.  He mentioned some health problems when I talked with him at the Orange County Show in March.  He was a great guy, champion weightlifter and had a variety of marbles.  Condolences to his family.

I often competed with Leo for marbles on ebay years ago.  I didn't meet him until Linda Simmons and I attended the marble show in Seattle last year.  I bought a Ro Purser marble from Leo at that show and I will always have fond memories of him associated with that marble.  Prayers for his family.  He spoke to me about having a son who was following in his footsteps.  Special thoughts going out for that son.  Leo will be missed by many in the marble world.

I only met him once, at the Sea-Tac show in 2008, but it was enough to know that he had a great heart and soul. He had a special fondness for peewees - he sat on my bed and started to pick through a bunch of them that I had in a box, and I finally just made him a deal on the whole box - he was grinning from ear to ear. I'm so saddened to read this today. Rest in peace Leo.
