Uncle Leonard was a wonderful caring man. a loyal man to his wife, family and freinds. His sence of humor will never be forgotten. His love of music and guitars were shared with many, including my dad, (Leo Gendreau), my father-in-law (Brian Bonin) and my sons, ( Chad and Jason Bonin)….. He will be missed by me and all the people that knew him. I love you Uncle Leonard! God Bless You!!!

It is with heartfelt sadness that I say farewell to Uncle Leonard. He was a special uncle in my life. He was a kind and caring man with a great sense of humor. He shared his love for music with family for many years while I was growing up. Those times will always be among my special memories. He will be so missed.

Uncle Leonard,
It saddens me that your smile and laugh will not adorn us any longer. I thank you for all your time spent with my husband Larry in his formative years. You are a big part of the man he is today.
Larry and I will miss you.
