Leon's values were like those of many of his peers who experienced the depression and grew up in a time and place that was still close enough to the frontier to be shaped by it. He was loyal, honest to a fault, morally tough and unafraid of hard work. He put his family before himself and like many people who grew up poor he was open handed and generous. He never passed up a stranger in need and for many years as a logger worked from before dawn to after dark without complaint to support his family. Much of Loan's education came from the world of experience. He learned to farm, hunt and fish early in life. He was an athlete in high school in Days Creek, Oregon where he played basketball and was the star pitcher and hitter on the baseball team. He entered the working world in his early teens, first as a truck driver and a self taught journeyman mechanic and later as a skilled heaw equipment operator. In 1950, after high school, he moved to Dayville, Oregon, following the Montgomery family's daughter, Marda Jean, and where he helped his future father-in-law in an attempt to rescue a failing ranch. The month following her high school graduation, Marda and he were married. Their marriage lasted 63 years until her death in November, 2013. Soon after their first child, Marsha's, birth, Leon and Marda accompa- nied her family to Califerniq where their second daughter, Lorri was born and Leon worked for Sierra Mountain Mills as a mechanic and truck driver. In 1958, the two Montgomery families and the Moores uprooted their lives again moving their children, pets and heavy equipment to Nakusp, British Columbia. Leon drove Cat, kept the equipment running and bossed crews as they contract logged for Erickson Enterprises on the Upper Arrow Lakes. Some of Leon's favorite memories were of hunting and fishing with friends and his brother-in-law Jack while living in Nakusp. Two more children, Russell and Lerna, were born in British Columbia. In 1963, the Moeres once again Mowed Marda's parents, John and Pearl, returning to the U.S., settling in Shelton where their last daughter Sharon was born, and Leon worked for Simpson Timber Company building roads. In the mid 1980s, Leon took an early retirement, bought a log- ging truck and hauled for Simpson for several more years before retiring for good. Leon served his communil7 as a volunteer fireman and Emergency Medical Technician and worked in tile Food Bank for the United Methodist Church Jn Shelton for many years. Behind his crus exterior, he was Pope Leon to his grand children and "Uncle Beastie" to his nieces and nephews. Leon died September 11, 2014, in Shelton surrounded by his girls. Leon is survived by his children; Marsha Lockhart (Bruce), Lerri Moore (Paul Sparks), Russell Moore (Rayna), Loma Shepardson (Paul) and Sharon Fogo (John); grandchildren; Chris Camp, Caitlin Lockhart, Morgan Sparks, Athena Shepardson, Orion Shepardson, Sierra Fogo, Jenessa Fogo, Andree Fogo and his only great grandchild, Ben Kaulitzke.
