We are sorry to learn the news about Leon. He was a good man: a 4-H leader in the club where our sons belonged; the father of two of our fine students at Basehor High School; and a community supporter. In recent years, we especially enjoyed visiting with him at the post office. We send our sympathy to all of his family. Chris & Marilyn Anderson
