HUSBAND of Marie Ann (Clark) Rodebush.   Leo married the love of his life, Marie Clark on February 21, 1953. They were married 57 years at the time of her death in May 2011.

FATHER of 3 children:
Ed, Doug & Kim

Leo lived in Glenpool area for over fifty years. He worked as a route salesman, service station owner, City of Glenpool employee and painted houses in the area well into his seventies.

GrandPa of 6 loving grandchildren

Great GrandPa of 2 great grandchildren.
He was known as "Poppy" to his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was good at spoiling them and very proud of each one.

Many friends and acquaintances.

Leo was preceded in death by his parents: Ralph and Ruth Rodebush, his brother, Leon, and his loving wife, Marie Ann Rodebush.

He is survived by his children: Ed Rodebush and his wife, Gayle of Eufaula, Doug Rodebush and his wife, Carol of Mannford, Kim Dobson of Haskell and fiancé Larry Cole of Haskell, his brother, Eldon Rodebush of Drumright.

The family would like to thank The Gardens Nursing Home and Life Journey Hospice for their care of Leo in his final weeks.

As Leo took his last breath he was not alone. Carol was with him and held him, telling him it was all right to go to Marie. No words are worthy to explain the love the family has for a special Angel of Mercy such as Carol.
