Condolences for Leo Kenneth Obershaw
So sorry Bernadine and family. I have very fond memories of Uncle Leo. His laugh and sense of humor! And his stories of a snake in the grass during one of his babysitting times with us. RIP.
Hugs and prayers for you Bernie and your family. I know he will always be missed. Love 💕
Bernadine and family, so sorry for your loss, your Dad was a great man and will be missed
Bernadine, Wade and families. We heard of Leo’s passing from my sister Melissa (Missi) as she saw it on a FB post by Bernadine. Jeanne and I were sorry to hear of Leo’ and immediately started remembering our times together with Leo in Bloomfield. As you probably recall, we were neighbors on Main Street where Leo and I shared an occasional beer, cigarette and laughs. Leo also helped us with the remodeling of our home in Bloomfield. Leo had a unique personality where every conversation ended with a joke and a laugh. We truly appreciated the times we spent with him.
Hope you and your families are doing well. Wish you God’s grace during this time of mourning.

Deepest sympathy for your loss. I am saddened by Uncle Leo’s passing. He was a favorite teen uncle despite the fact he would twist mine and my sister’s arms trying to tell us apart.
