Leon served in the Army from 1960 until he received an honorable discharge in 1965. In 1966, Leon moved from Lobato, West Virginia to Columbus, Ohio. He met and was united in holy matrimony to his late wife Arnetta Louise Penn in 1968. In this union, they raised seven beautiful children. While living in Columbus, Ohio Leon became employed by Laborers’ International Union of North America, Local Union #423. From 1966 through 1997, Leon helped build numerous facilities within the state of Ohio.
