Do you have a favourite story about Leon? Want to post a poem or other something else to commemorate him? Here is the place to do so. Please share with us your favourites.
Here is one of mine:
When I first met Leon, Michelle and I were going up to Powell River so I could meet her parents. Michelle figured that her dad and I could do some male bonding while fixing her car (We had been in a fender bender some time earlier.) When we met, he was eager to recount to me his tales of youthful exuberance. One story he recounted to me that has always stuck with me was the time he “won” a bet by winching his truck up a telephone pole. I must say I was speechless. (I later learned that the money he won had to be spent getting a tow truck to help get his truck down from said pole!) This is a perfect example of dad having some fun and then later catching the consequences. He certainly took life by the horns!
