Mar. 2, 1981 Fayetteville Washington County Arkansas, USA
George Leon Arbaugh always went by his middle name Leon. He never went by his first name and most people would probably only know him by the name Leon. Even his headstone has no mention of the name George on it. His full legal name was: George Leon Arbaugh.

✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞✞ The Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don't worry about falls I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we're together again."
