Leo passed away on March 4, 2021, after a short illness, at age 49. He was the father of Riley and Julia; the son of Jack and Chris; the brother of Pam (John) Bartlo; and the uncle of Anna and Eric Bartlo. He was also the grandson of Mary and the late Bobby Lehman and the late Leo and Margaret Klein. Leo is also survived by numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins. Leo loved the Boston Red Sox, Buffalo Bills, and Rochester Knighthawks. He was a season ticket holder for the Knighthawks for many years and had good friends in the “hawk’s nest” cheering section. Leo was quick to offer a helping hand to others and will be missed by many.
