Larry G. Leonard, 70, of Rochester, passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at his home surrounded by his family after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Larry was born on April 27, 1953, in Springfield, the son of Robert “Tom” and Marilyn (Moomey) Leonard. He married Jackie Connell on September 27, 1985. Larry enjoyed bowling, fishing, gardening, road trips, birdwatching, and spending time with his kids and granddaughters.
