Please accept our condolences. I didn't know Leo well, but I always enjoyed seeing him and your mother when I called on you. I know he will be missed.

So sorry, Dorothy. The obituary was beautiful but unfortunately the papers were in a pile and I finally read a week's worth last night. I'll remember Leo at the Y in Greenville. You had such a wonderful shared life!

There are too many stories to tell and a lot of laughter that went with them. Thank you Dorothy and family for sharing your dad with me. I will miss the walks we took, but I know that I will someday get to walk with him again. This time we won't run out of steam, Leo and we will surely have even more to discuss. I sure will miss you so I will just say "see you later." Your sister in Christ.

Tammy and I extend our sympathy to the entire Mark's family. Leo took a chance on me as an 18 year old rebel to be his printer. Over the years he would tell me of the other people he offered jobs to after he and Dorothy would return from a trip to Big Boy for a "bite to eat". God placed Leo in my path at just the right time. I came to Nationwide searching for something, but didn't know what. Leo was such a Godly influence on me and my family, soon I would accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. I remember Leo and Dorothy were present when Tammy and I were baptized. Thank God for you, you will always have a special place in my heart.

Thoughts and prayers to the entire Marks family. I had the pleasure meeting Leo when he drove the bus to Florida for our spring break trip in 1979. We all pooled money together and purchased a big stuffed Mickey Mouse. The look on Leo's face was priceless!! He will be missed.

To the entire Marks family it is with great sadness to hear of Leo's passing. When I moved to Appleton in 1994 to become a driver for the Mark's family I had no idea what the next ten years would bring. Almost immediately they greeted me with a warmth and friendliness that made me feel right at home. I recall sitting at the table in a local restaurant repairing Dorothy's watch that had a broken latch. Over the next ten years I made many friends as a tour operator and one very special friend "Charlie". He was Leo's gray McCaw. We became best buddies. He and Leo are together and I know they are very happy once more. Leo, Dorothy and the Marks son's created a legacy over the years that far surpasses any coach company and leaving some of them sitting in the dust. After losing my Mother in 2004 I departed Appleton leaving behind so many friends and a second family that will not be forgotten for a very long time. Know in your hearts that in your time of sadness God's arms will be there to comfort you and that he will help you to remember the wonderful moments you shared with Leo, his children, and grandchildren. Recall all the great times, the extra special moments and remember most of all He is in a Superior Place now and he will be just a prayer away when you need him the most. May God Bless You and Keep you in his Eternal Arms.

To Dorothy and all of Leo's family, God bless you in your grief. I had the pleasure of getting to know Leo at the Greenville Y. His mischievous sense of humor and always positive conversation were something to look forward to each day. A dear and blessed man who always spoke so proudly and lovingly of his family, faith, and travels. God bless you Leo!

Well done, good and faithful servant. You will be missed by your family, but also by your Nationwide friends. Back in the 90s I remember Leo driving the bus for a Xavier Band Trip that I chaperoned. Leo leaves quite a legacy!
