To Pat, LeeAnn & family, I enjoyed growing up with Leo as my neighbor in Delphi, we had great times particularly hanging out
at Figley’s Delphi Market. I guess the Montgomery’s liked us so well. They moved from being neighbors to the west of us, they built a new brick house and became our neighbors on the northside of us. What a great guy and rarely without a smile or a big hello.
He made it to all our class reunions and and was the life of the party. He will be sorely missed by all of us from the SC class of 72.
My two sisters, Jeanne & Barb also express their condolences.
Delphi seems a little smaller today.
Farewell Leo!
