  1. Pat and Leon were life long friends of my Nana and Pawpaw. I have many memories of playing at their house as a child. I’m sure they all have a lot of catching up to do now that he has joined them. Thoughts and prayers are with Pat and the rest of the Chandler family.

  2. Pat, I am so sorry for you and your family’s loss. Leon was a very nice man and my husband Buddy really enjoyed visiting with him. He would stop by and talk to Buddy about gardening and other stuff. Prayers for the Chandler family.

  3. Carnell Davis family just learned of Leon’s passing. Our condolences to the family. We are so sorry we did not get to say bye. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
