Leonard was also an avid sports fan, particularly of baseball and the Boston Red Sox. He also loved his cats, especially his most recent, named Bear. He was predeceased by both parents; his sister, Marjorie Sipowicz; and wife of over 60 years, Valerie. Leonard is survived by his daughter, Lori Merrill, his son, John Nason; and nephew Hugh Sipowicz. Per his request, services will be private. Burial will be in the Hallowell Cemetery.
