On August 19, 1977, he married Karen Miller at the United Methodist Church in Marysville.  They began their life together on a farm outside of Summerfield.  He spent countless hours working hard and passed that work ethic on to his son, Shawn.  Later they moved to Marysville, but he continued farming up until he had a stroke, a few years ago. His greatest pride and joy was being called Papa.  He looked forward to every opportunity to share his orneriness with his grandchildren.  Leo enjoyed camping and boating with his family. Preceding him in death were his parents; and special sister-in-law, Sharen Reinhardt. Survivors include wife, Karen; son, Shawn (Jessica) Schneider; four grandchildren, Samantha, Daren, Jennifer and Amber; two great grandchildren, Jacob and Lindsey; sisters, Beverly (Rod) Nash, Hutchinson, KS, and Brenda (Gib) Compton, Park City.
