I became an All-State customer in 1999. I was always greeted with a smile and friendly conversation with Leonard. He was just so easy to talk to...like family. I miss that old country gentleman.

So sorry to hear of Leonard's passing. He was my first sales manager when I entered the Insurance field in 1987. We remained friends even though our careers took us in different paths. You will truly be missed. Sending prayer for all of the family.

I was a classmate of Leonard's at Greensville County Schools. I remember Leonard as a quiet and very polite young man. My prayers are with the family at this time.

Rest in peace my dear friend, I will always treasure our time together professionally and especially during our bike rides down the Blue Ridge Parkway sharing our passion. Our bikes are now silent but the tales will run on for ever. Rest in peace.
