Leonard was born, July 19, 1945 in Newark, Ohio to the late George and Ida Bricker. Leonard was a stern, loving, but sometimes a hardheaded man. He spent most days in the basement where he would make jewelry boxes and other beautiful creations. His woodworking skills were self-taught and perfecting over hours of practice. He enjoyed making jewelry boxes for his wife, children, and grandchildren. You could always count on a secret drawer somewhere or a cute little reindeer. When not, woodworking you could find him, on his 1952 8n Ford tractor in the yard. If Leonard could have drove around the world on that tractor, he most definitely would have but most of the time he was cutting the yard and quite possibly the neighbors.
Leonard served 2 years in the United States Army where he was stationed in Germany. He then married Clara May on November 9, 1974. They enjoyed 48 years of love for one another.
