Leon enjoyed gardening, camping at Dale Hallow Lake Campground and fishing the Obey River. He was
an amazing cook and enjoyed cooking for big groups like for the Pathfinders with his wife Vicki Collins by
his side. Leon was known for being able to fix anything mechanical and very handy with building and his
hands, it may take him a day to figure it out but before long it was fixed and/or built.

Stephens; grandchildren, Alexis (Josh) Homan, Rachel Collins, Jessica Collins, Maelea Stephens, Shelby
Stephens and Shaylee Stephens; Great Granddaughter Lynnleigh Homan; Siblings: Sadie Braswell, Rose
