We all are so sad in many ways that we are in shock. Leon is a great person who has made many people laugh. He is going to be missed.
So sorry for your loss, but anyone who knew him have fond memories. RIP
Leon had one of the great personalities of our time. I have had the pleasure of knowing him since 7th grade at Central Jr. High. We had a Math class together. Mrs. Bly used to just have a fit when Leon would answer her question with ” you bet your boots grannie”. He could always make me laugh. R.I.P. you were a good, kind, decent man. Lawrence will seem less colorful without you.
Lot’s of laughs with Leon and the Fleetwood crew from years gone by. Just a good ole boy as the song goes. Will always remember the fun times. My sincere condolences to the family. I leave this with one farewell “Glad Hand”. He would know what that is. Adios amigo—
In the Loss of your loved one your Father, your Grandfather, may the precious memories of love of your loved one be a comfort to you now.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May God’s Blessings be with all of you for comfort and healing at this time. Just know now Leon is resting in peace.
Condolences to the Hattabaugh Family. Leon and I were schoolmates and worked at Fleetwood Homes years ago. His fun for life and sense of humor will be missed.
Leon and I went to school together for many years. He was someone that always had a smile on his face. I wish we would have stayed in touch. 🙁
My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family in this time of loss and grief. During my time in the Hattabaugh family, I have fond memories of each and everyone of you. Kenny and Leon were close brothers and we spent a considerable amount of time with him fishing and having good times. I will always miss him so much. May the Lord be with the family in celebrating his life and grieving his death. Love you all.
Hattabaugh family. It was my pleasure knowing all of you and I am so sorry for your loss. May God Hold All of You in His Loving Arms and give you some Solice. God Bless You All.
Linda, Judy, Connie, and the gang. We were saddened to learn of Leon’s passing. he used to work with my dad at Kmart, and would follow him home in the summer evenings and help us pick up hay. I was a teenager then, and thought he was one of the funniest guys I have ever met. he was a good man. You folks are in our thoughts and prayers.
Joyce and K.G, sorry to read about Leon’s passing.First time I really got to know Leon was on a deer hunt down in Missouri , and he was on crutches with a broken bone in his leg, no problem for him getting around the hills. R.I.P , ole hunter====
I have fond memories of Leon almost all of my life. My thoughts are with the rest of family. I spent most of my weekends as a kid at their house. To me they are all special people I will never forget.
