Dear Anna and family...sending my sincere condolences.

To my dear sister Anna and my 2 amazing Nephews David and Glenn and your Families,
My dear sister Anna, our hearts are with you in this great loss of your husband, soulmate, partner, father of your 2 beautiful children and Amazing Grandchildren, we will miss Leonard tremendously, but our memories will live on with the great times we have had.
Your wedding was the beginning of great stories and laughter of your wild honeymoon trip in the dead of winter to the cottage …
We loved coming to the stock car races making a note of cheering Leonard on and being able to go into the pitts to take in all the action and cursing of the other drivers Lol
Then teaching the boys to race the stocks what a great joy it was to be there.
The great times was when the families were all together and we played cards. Leonard was the fastest card shuffler ever and quick to draw in the win and the odd time if you were quick enough you could catch him trying to cheat 🤭
When the Grandchildren came along we saw a huge change in him he was like a soft hearted teddy bear whenever they were around..and what we loved the most was when Leonard and you Anna were in the kitchen teaching those beautiful kids how to bake and cook, the joy of the little ones faces were priceless as we witnessed a few times.
Leonard you were a patient man while Anna and I shopped in the second hand shops and yard sales for hours. Thank you for that 💕
Leonard’s record and book collection always amazed me and his memory of every detail of those albums and books were astounding as any information about any movie star or artist I wanted to know he could answer as quick as that

Our hearts are saddened to have a great loss in our lives and we will miss you Leonard Tooley 💕
So until we meet again may your journey be a smooth one ❤️

Anna and family, my deepest condolences on your loss. I have lots of great memories of working with Leonard on the night shift at MacTac. He was quite the character!

I’m so sorry to hear of Leonard’s passing. I can never find the right words at a difficult time like this, but please know you are all in my heart and prayers now and the days to come. Rest peacefully Leonard

Sincerely ,

— Catherine Tooley-Burden, May 28, 2024
