Leon graduated from Eldora High School in 1953, then attended the University of Iowa. He married Mary Ellen Krause on September 23, 1956 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Eldora. He farmed his family’s century farm until his retirement in 1997. He spent his retirement years in Clear Lake and later in Naples, Florida. He loved snowmobiling, boating, entertaining with his joke telling, and cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes. His smile would light up a room and was often the life of the party.

His family always came first and loved attending ANYTHING his kids or grandkids were involved in.
