I only heard today of Leo's passing and it's left me a little numb. I met Leo in the early 90's when I boarded with him and his late wife Marjorie. Leo and I were always up to badness together. Soon after meeting me he stuck the name A***hole on me. I gave him many good reasons of course. My favourite method of tormenting him was to change the tv channel to Doogie Howser, M.D. and then hiding the remote, or even funnier, I'd remove the batteries and let him have the remote. Oh how he hated that show. I definitely earned my nickname. But no matter what we were up to the house was always filled with laughter. Leo was like a second father to me from back then until he passed away. He was a great guy who treated everyone with kindness. Goodbye for now A***hole Sr. I'll see you on the other side.
