Leonard was such a dear sweet man of the lord. The first day I attended he greeted and hugged me. My wife and I had the great pleasure of sitting in the pew in front of him. He was always singing the lords praises. After my wife passed I continued to sit there and Leonard always would ask how I was doing and tell me he loved me. He will be missed, he is with the lord and his beloved Vera Gene now. Loved that man deeply.
We meet Leonard and Vera Gene when our middle daughter rented an apartment from them. Leaving our daughter to start college all by herself was so much easier because we knew she had the Hills as her Lincoln grandparents. They were the sweetest most caring people. My youngest daughter loved to visit them. Leonard always had a new state quarter for her. We even got to stay with them at their cabin\house in MN. Enjoy your reunion with your sweet Vera Gene.
So sorry to hear of Mr. Hill”s passing. He was such a warm person. I did not attend the church regularly but every time I was there he always had a smile and hug to offer. He will be missed.
Our deepest condolences to the entire family. He was such a wonderful man! I always loved seeing his enthusiasm for life as well as how much he enjoyed listening to the Waverly Community band concerts!
Leonard you will be missed we enjoyed our times we spent together at church and at family gatherings. I think God made a Christian in you Leonard that never met a stranger you were always kind and loving to everyone.
My prayers are with your family, Arch and Val. I am so very sorry for your loss, but grateful for Christ Jesus, who in Him we are set free.
We will miss Leonard so much. He was the best neighbor for the last 15 years. We will miss his kind words, the hugs and our long talks over the fence.
Sending out thoughts, prayers and love to the whole family.
Love The Vaneks
Dear friends, You have my heartfelt condolences at the loss of Leonard. What a dear saint of God! I am so thankful I had the privilege of becoming acquainted with him over the past year and a half. His love for God was so evident in the enthusiastic way he sang. And his obvious love for people was demonstrated in the way he interacted with everybody who walked by. I will miss his warm smile and gentle teasing, and yet rejoice with you knowing that the day he died was the day he truly began to LIVE! And like you, I look forward to seeing him again in God’s Forever Kingdom.
Our prayers are with the family at this time. He was a great person & friend over the years. God Bless him on his next journey in the house of the Lord. Amen!
