Barney F. Leonard, Sr. was by all accounts a brave, selfless, (and as his name indicated,) lion-hearted man who loved to innovate, create and teach.
He never ran from danger always into the fray to do his part. He lives on in every memory and as an example for us.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
