Leon later discovered the pleasure of auctions and spent much of his time hunting for tools and other treasures.

Leon is survived by two children, Kristen (Myron) McPhail and Robert (Lisa) Bennett; five grandchildren, Justin, Alex, Brionna, Jayden and Mandie; brothers Larry Bennett and Richard Bennett. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Robert Bennett.
