Leo was a lover of all things western. He loved all animals but had a special affection for birds. He raised many different types of birds; he loved to raise pheasants and turn them out into the wild. To know Leo, weas to be a part of his good humor, and his zest for life. He had a knack for turning mundane chores into playful adventures and to be able to laugh about anything.

After returning from serving his country, he married Sharon McAlexander and they had four children together. After his divorce, he married the love of his life, Janet Young.
