Lt. Leis, perhaps you knew Officer William C. Cook, an officer of the highest esteem who worked out of the Central Division where you were a sergeant. He was killed in the line of duty on May 16, 1979 and was as brave and honorable as you. You are both in heaven sharing old moments. Rest in peace Lt. Leis. Bravery and humility were your best partners.
