Leo was a good friend of my husband, Rev. Harvey Kandler, through Rotary and through the commissioning of many wood carvings for Immanuel UCC, Kaukauna. We admired Leo for his creative work, his service and caring for the community and the people of Kaukauna. He was an excellent role model. I'm sure Harvey greeted him at heaven's door with a firm handshake and welcome! Praise God for Leo's rich and fulfilling life.

To: Leo's Family

We are on Marco Island for the Winter and were so saddened to hear of Leo's passing. What a great Citizen of our Community. I was privileged to know Leo as a fellow Rotarian for over forty years. We worked together on the founding of Kaukauna's Industrial Park Commission where Leo was our first "Volunteer" Representative. Leo contributed greatly to our early successes. Later, I followed Leo on the Board of the Community Foundation of the Fox Cities: Another successful venture. During his lifetime I can think of no one who is more deserving of the title, "Mr. Kaukauna", than Leo. We will all miss wonderful perspectives and contributions to our community.

Leo was one of the first people I met when I came to Kaukauna to teach. I was so impressed with his dedication to all that was good for students and for the community. He lived a model life of active citizenship, and made a positive difference for so many. I will miss seeing him at work in his garden, striding along with a broad smile for all, and weighing in on matters of importance to Kaukauna. Well done, Leo!
With Sympathy, Faye Binsfeld
