He graduated Whitman-Hanson High School in 1982, and for 37 years has worked in construction.

He loved his Harley Davidson Soft Tail Slim Bike and going on runs and rides with all his buddies, spending time up in Maine around the pond. He also enjoys working on odd end jobs and doing anything outdoors. When he actually came in to relax you could always bet money on him watching Chicago P.D. or NCIS.

He was also the beloved brother of Cyndy Kawadler, deceased sister Debra Leonard and deceased brother Harold Leonard. Along with a brother-in-law Rob Kawadler and two nephews Brandon Kawadler and Tyler Kawadler.
