We keep in our hearts the memory of a good and brave man, our dear cousin John Leonesio. He was fond of his Italian heritage and as a genealogy enthusiast, John contributed significantly to the reconstruction of the history of the Leonesio family.
Dear Johnny, our prayers and our love will accompany you until we will meet again. Amen. Your cousin GianLuigi with his wife Agostina, and sons Mauro, Angelisa and Emiliana Leonesio.
