Leo, and his entire family, have always been the best, They were fun and exciting neighbors to be around. The neighborhood was a fantastic place to live. To know Leo, Doris, and the entire Herrick family, was a blast. Their dog, Shag was loved by everyone.
It was also a fun adventure to go into Leo's Market.
Leo, Doris, and their family were known by everyone, and loved by them as well. Many years of pure fun and laughter, and true joy in knowing Leo and his wonderful family. I know he is laughing with God, as he tells his jokes. We will see him again. You are all in my Prayers and thoughts for comfort and healing. It was always fun to be around Leo Herrick .
