Has it only been one year? It seems like 5 years. Miss hearing Leo's perspective about politics and the coronavirus. Miss the wisdom and insight from this straight arrow with honesty and integrity. Boy are those qualities needed in these difficult times. I miss him enormously.

I have no doubt that Leo would be out there serving as best as he could during this awful time that we are going through. The world lost a good man the day God called him home.

I was an email friend with Leo for several years,from 2011.
I was introduced to him by mutual friends, Doc & Marion Buttermore. They were neighbors of his and your mom at their winter homes.
He didn't write as often once he moved to the assisted living facility but did keep in touch.
He was such a caring man with all that he did for our country and for others.
I would have loved to have known him in person.
My sincere condolences to his family and all that knew and loved him.

Mr. Letendre,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice-first for our Country when you served with the USN during WW II as a Submariner with the Silent Service and later for the citizens of Somerville when you served with the SPD. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Leo was one of the volunteers that worked with me at Hallmark Health Cancer Center in Stoneham. He was such a kind and genuine gentleman. He loved volunteering at the Center . He always had a smile for everyone and he touched many lives throughout the years. He made the best of every challenge that came his way. He led a very remarkable and interesting life. He was loved and respected by everyone here. He will never be forgotten.

We are so sorry to hear about Leo's passing. He was a wonderful, kind man with a huge heart. We loved listening to him talk about his family and life stories and what an impressive life he lived. He was loved and respected by everyone that knew him and we feel blessed to have known him for 11 yrs. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. May your memories bring you peace and comfort. Deepest condolences, the Watson family.

For years we heard the legend of Leo Letendre as lovingly told by the Montclair wing of his family. And were thrilled to meet him and Betty at different functions, as they beamed and presided over everyone's good time. Without knowing it, he had through his emissaries a distant but enormous impact on our lives. Thank you, Leo.
