My dad so enjoyed having Leon with him as a member of the Trinity Pie Maker "ladies". He enjoyed his friendship so much as they conversed while doing their jobs of apple peeling, heavy lifting or any other job they were instructed to do. When my mom was sharing some memories last month before she died, she mentioned how Leon was one of the nicest men she had known and how much dad had thought of him. May your great memories of him help you as you go through this difficult time.

Leon was one of a kind. He was always my go-to guy when I was on the Church Council. He was my go-to guy for the Radio Club. We've missed him these past few months and he will certainly be missed now. The Radio Club will be sponsoring the Palm Sunday broadcast this week in memory of Leon. God be with you all. Know he is with his Savior and we will again see him.

Leon Schreck Faimily - Please accept our condolences on the passing of Leon. Although this may be a time of sadness it is also a celebration of his past life and now the beginning of his eternal life. Uncle Leon once shared with me that when his brother "Ronald" passed away, he not only lost a brother, but also his best friend. There is little doubt that they are enjoying each other's company once again! God Bless.
