    I worked at the Prothonatary’s Office for 32 years and Leonard was not only a lawyer, but he was such a sincere and helpful person. He really cared about his clients and also the employees not only in the Prothonotary Office but through out the Courthouse. He will be deeply missed!!

  2. Ann M.Karpovich says:

    Leonard was one of my favorite people when I was in Rotary and when I was working at First National Bank. He will be remembered for his “creative style” of banking and for all of the great deeds he had accomplished as a Rotarian and leader of the community.
    I wish you all well, and I am sure we will all have a smile in our hearts when we think of Leonard.
