He was a member of Mountain Shadows County Club, the American, Illinois, New York and Chicago bar associations, Phi Kappa Theta and Phi Alpha Delta fraternities.

A native of Lead, S.D., he had practiced law in South Dakota, Iowa, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

Survivors include his wife, Genevieve; five sons, Leo Jr. of Madison, Wis., Dan of Alexandria, Va., Tom of Aurora, Ill., Pat of Raleigh, Tenn., and John of West Virginia; a daughter, Joan Colson of Fayetteville, N.C., two step-children, Volney Chase of Sylvania, Ohio; and Jerry of Chicago; and a sister in Nebraska.
