A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, June 20th at 11 a.m. in the Aura Cemetery with Pastor Peter Suomela officiating. The Jacobson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Alden and Glenda Hiltunen Family. Leo cherished the time spent with all of you, and the many memories made over the years. Additionally, our sincere thanks to Craig and Kate Beer who were always there for Leo, no matter what the need
