Leo served for 2 and ½ years in the Pacific as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army Air Corps, 35th Fighter Group as a mechanic and propeller specialist. He spent his retirement flying out of Skylark Airport, where he shared his love of flying. His family would like to thank the Windsor Volunteer Fire Department and all those involved in the efforts to save Leo. They would also like to thank the Roger Wolcott School staff for making his daily living tolerable after the death of his “Pudgy” in 1995 with a week-day “fill up” of hugs and attention.
