Loving father of Ellen (Leonard) Atherton and husband Brian, Frederick Leonard Jr. and wife Jessica. Brother of Lillian Barbetta, Robert W. Leonard and Dennis P. Leonard, and the late Francis E. Leonard Jr., Richard A. Leonard, and sister Susan (Leonard) Treumper. Also survived by several nieces and nephews.

    What a guy! A giant gentleman and my big brother at Bentley. Always a helping hand, great conversation and had my back like a big brother would! I miss the echoes of his big voice on campus. I miss his stories of cars, music and his love for his wife and kids. He was a proud family guy ❤️ Till we meet again my big friend, we’ll have two heavenly martinis and flip cancer the bird! Peace andBlessings, Tonya
