He is survived by a brother, Michael; and a sister, Flora.

He was well known as “Leo the Roofer”- Roofing was his passion and his work spoke for itself. He was in great demand far and wide.  He was loved by everyone that knew him. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help others. He was very intelligent, meticulous, kindhearted, and loving.

He battled with cancer for 14 yrs before he won the fight and left his earthly home to walk the streets of gold with his heavenly father.

 He is preceded in death by his parents, Elmer Sr. and Virginia Norwood and three brothers- Elmer Jr., Edward, and William (Big Oney).
