At the same time, he worked alongside Bill Thomas building many homes in the Maple Ave and West St. areas. He married Claire Tata and raised two children while he built his own home on French Hill. Leo was a very private person, but always was willing to help others with his “Jack of All Trades” abilities. Whether it was carpentry, plumbing, auto repair or fixing the lawn mower, he would lend anyone a hand and expect nothing in return.
