He enlisted with the U.S. Army and served his country in the 45th Infantry, during the Korean War. Following his honorable discharge, Leon returned to Vinita and began a career with Western Electric.

An avid fisherman, Leon enjoyed finding the best spot on the lake to catch a mess of crappie. He was a loyal Sooner fan and made sure he didn't miss watching a game. Leon was also kept up with the St. Louis Cardinals Baseball. You could find him most days at the Senior Citizens Center visiting with all of his friends. Leon traveled with Sue, through the years and together were able to see many places in the states.
