Leo worked for D.A.B. in Bellefontaine for 16 years before moving to Florida in 1970, where he owned his own construction business for 23 years. He did home remodeling and was a cabinet maker, carpenter, and contractor. He loved to travel in his RV and enjoyed mushroom hunting. He was a gifted person of carpentry as well as a guitar player where he played in the country gospel band, “Hemmi and the Boys.” They played for 12 years, traveling to different area retirement homes.

Leo also worked for J.C. Penny, Consolidated Care, both working in their maintenance departments. He returned to Ohio from Florida in 1992 and completely remodeled their home and lived there for 15 years. He then moved and retired to Green Hills Apartments and had been there for 10 years. Leo liked bus trips where they traveled the countryside and made many friends.

Leo and Donna worked and did everything together including walking, shopping, vacationing; they were one together. Where you would see Leo, you would see Donna.

The family would like to thank all of the residents of Green Hills Apartments & Homes, as they were always there for Leo and Donna and made them feel so blessed with friends.
