Does anyone know how and when Leon died? My husband grew up with him in Skokie and then Bob moved to Northbrook and lost touch with Leon. We heard about twenty five years ago he had died, and we have over the years tried to find out what happened with no luck. Bob has some wild stories about Leon, I never knew him in school but wondered if anyone that did knows what happened.  So if anyone can help us out it would be great.

I don't remember the year, but Leon's body was found at a beach in Florida. Apparently he went there to scuba dive and he was robbed. As far as I know it was never solved. I too have some great leon stories. Most of them involve fast cars or motorcycles!

I too have some Leon stories about motorcycles and cars.  Might even have some 8mm home movies starring Leon and others. I bought his pink Harley Sportster and cruised around with it through college years with Carl McHugh and Don Campbell.

Leon and I got together in high school to play some music and formed a small band.  We ended up playing at a few church teen dances but never really jelled into anything more.  Can't remember how we met, but we had some fun times together.  I was shocked to hear he had been murdered on beach in Florida.

It's been so many years and did Leon or his brother have a Harley sportster and did he reside on Hinman ave? I think there was a Corvette in the deal some where too??

Thanks for all the updates on Leon. My husband , has lots of pre high school stories. Leon was a bit wild. Bob went to visit him one day and rode to his house on his bike , he was 14, Leon drove by him in a car. There are lots of stories like that . So sorry to hear that he was just found dead, that is so sad.

Dale C. Madson,

 

Leon had parked his/brothers Harley along side the auto mechanics building and he was trying to kick start the bike with out any luck. So me who knew nothing about the process steps up to help, as Leon was a bit dogged from kicking the starter. He reluctantly let me give it a try, I cought it on a compression pop and it about put me over the handlebars. Much to the delight of those that were gathered around. To the best of my memory Leon got back on the bike and it cranked on the first kick. He promptly road off into the sunset.

Best motorcycle ride I've ever had, bar none.  He said 'hang on tight' and he meant it.  Seems like we went from Golf to Howard on McCormick in about 45 seconds but believe me, I wasn't looking at my watch.  Think of him regularly.  Special spirit.  Really stunned and saddenend when I heard the news.
