Macedon - Leo, 86, passed away peacefully after spending the day surrounded by his loving family. 

Leo and his wife of 66 years, Eleanor, built their family and life together in Macedon, NY.  Leo taught all his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren the importance of family.  His large family gathers to celebrate every moment, because he valued the importance of being together and enjoying all of life’s moments with one another.  Leo demonstrated his strength, kindness, humor and acceptance to all those who knew him, and these qualities will continue to live on through all he instilled in his loved ones. As he said goodbye, he shared that he had a great and happy life.  We will all strive to do the same by loving those around us, as he did.
