It is so sad to hear of the passing of a good man, a terrific lawyer & judge and a dear friend. Leo & I met in approx. 1986 when I got involved in the National Municipal Law section of the Canadian Bar Association. For several years we planned seminars for that body. As I was single during much of that time, Leo & Willi would invite me to dine with them while at conferences. We always had very pleasant chats and enjoyed each others company. Later, I visited Leo & Willi with my new wife and then with 2 of my children – in separate trips. They, in turn, visited us in Nova Scotia – where we took our guests to wineries in The Valley. Leo educated all around him to the variety & pleasure of wines. All we can do now is toast to a life well-lived, to a fine host and a very good man. Leo was taken from his family and this world much too early.
