I met Tiger in 7th grade, we were in the same section together. I had a hard time making friends back then but we got along great. Maybe because we were both short, but between tiger dave Howells and myself we had a great four years!!! One memory I have to share is band class with Mr.Kern. I have thought of this for years and still crack up. We were Absolutely the Worst!!!!!Clarinet players in the history of poor Mr Kerns history....When we weren't squeaking or breaking our reeds we were pulling off the pads just to get out of playing.I can still remember, Reilly, Jones, Howells, stop squeaking!!!!!!!! I will never forget Tiger and I pray for all of his family. I just wish I could have told him how much he ment to me 40 years ago and even now. Love you, RIP

I want to extend my deepest sympathy to your families on the loss of Leo. We grew up in the same neighborhood in North Scranton. He was my cutest classmate at Holy Rosary School and we walked home from school together many times. We shared many happy days at Weston Park growing up. Leo was such a fun kid and always smiling. I will always remember those times and his incredible kindness and sense of adventure wandering the park. God bless you all in this difficult time.
