I just learned of Leon’s death; since I moved out of Orange County we had only kept in touch at conferences, I was saddened to hear of his passing. Leon was one of the good guys, someone you could trust. He was a credit to this profession and I will miss him. We served on the board together of the Orange County FPA chapter. You will be missed friend.
