Leland and my family became friends decades ago, when Leland constructed two silos for my Dad. Leland would call me every year on my birthday. My parents, two brothers and one sister have left this earth for their heavenly home. I am sure Leland is having a big discussion about all kinds of matters. The dinner table became livelier with Leland present. To his sweet wife and daughters, thank you for sharing your husband and Dad. Leland was loyal, caring, hard worker, family man but was never afraid to speak his mind. It was my honor to know Leland and his family.
