Leonard was born in St. Ambroise on December 31, 1944.  Growing up Leonard worked a lot with his dad, also helped local farmers and fishermen.  He went to school in St. Ambroise and later started to work for the RM of Portage running heavy machinery, he later went on to work at Mulder Construction until retiring.  He liked being outside, liked to make people laugh and he had a good sense of humour.  He was always willing to help when he could.  His hobbies were carving duck decoys and making boats with his dad. St. Amboise was and will always be his home.
