    Leo gave me my first job and it taught me two things. The world didn’t owe me a living and I couldn’t drive a dump truck.
    It was a pleasure years later after I had graduated as a pilot with British Airways to host Leo in the cockpit for a flight up to Scotland and he told me he was proud of me.
    It meant more to me than any flying instructor saying the same thing.
    Rest in peace Leo you were a true gent.

    A decent, dignified man, a real friend to our family and always great company. I remember him lending me his car to drive to Liverpool and back even though I was a young novice driver. Heartfelt condolences Margaret and your family.

    Rest in peace Uncle Leo. You were always a fantastic uncle, full of laughs and smiles, and I have many a fond memory of times spent in Sandbach when I was young, and trying my best to help with the bricks when I got a bit older.

    Thoughts are with Auntie Margaret and the rest of the family.
