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. One of his last construction project was at DSCC which ended with his retirement on July 31, 1997 after 31 years of service.

He was very passionate about serving the Lord and was known for sharing the word and encouraging scriptures.
In 2005, Elder Leon married Minister Anita King. He loved relaxing and working with Anita by his side. They really enjoyed working at the Roger J.
