Leonard was a great man. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and working with him at the Eudora Community Museum the past 5 years. He could always be counted on to selflessly volunteer for just about any project the museum ever had. The museum is so much better today because of all the work Leonard did for us over the years. He was an amazing person too, you could tell he had a great passion for many things in life, like music, photography and history. He was always kind and helpful. I will miss him greatly.
I will miss him greatly. His knowledge of both Eudora and St. Paul’s UCC was always so helpful. He was a real gentleman and friend.
Leonard was a great neighbor…we will miss his quiet presence.
I already miss my later-years Eudora history and pipe organ friend and my years-apart Church street neighbor! RIP, Friend.
I worked with Leonard at St. Paul and helped out when he was hospitalized last year. He was such a dear, wonderful and interesting person. I hope his house goes to a good family who will love and take care of it; I regret that he missed the flowers blooming last year during his surgery.
I always knew the sidewalk would be shoveled when I came to work! Leonard always helped proof the bulletins with me. He was a quiet, generous soul who gave so much to St. Paul; people will not know!!
Am so sad to hear that he’s not around and I know the historical society will miss him.
Love you Leonard!!! Karen
I met Leonard in 1957 when I joined the Madison County Rural Youth in Edwardsville, IL. Leonard was quiet back then too, but liked to have fun and was very sensible. We square danced at meetings and practiced in my parents basement. We all had a great time. He always talked about his brother Ernie in the Navy. Leonard played the organ and piano at the E & R Church in Marine, IL. He was great! I got married in 1961 to my husband of 54 1/2 years. Leonard moved to Kansas and we lost track of one another. A few years back his mother died and I found him again. We will miss his Christmas Cards. He was so excited about working with the Historical Society. I know that anyone that knew Leonard will miss him. God has chosen another one of our friends.

Leonard was a super nice guy always willing to help. I believe he nearly lived at the church and historical society. Both will surely miss him, as will I. When you went to church you just expected that he would be there, even if it wasn’t Sunday.
Rest in peace, Leonard, and know that many friends are missing you.
