Strathmere's Man About Town, Tom Leonard

October 19, 2018 - from the Strathmere Improvement Association -

  With heavy hearts we bring you news of the passing of Strathmere's Man About
Tom Leonard on Monday evening. Tom had a smile or hug for everyone, was a founder of the Fishing Club and super story teller. 
Services are set for Tom on Monday, October 22, in his hometown of Glenside, PA. Click the link for more information about Tom and his celebration of life:

On November 17, Tom's family will hold a memorial at the Strathmere United Methodist Church at 11 am, with a luncheon to follow in the Firehouse.

Last winter Tom sat down for an interview for the Strathmere Stories Video Archive project. Here's a rough cut of Part 1. For the remaining four parts, visit our youtube channel, Strathmere Stories.
