In the blink of an eye things can change... forgive often and love even more. It is with great sadness that we are learning of the passing of Leo - he was a part of the FMCSA Family and will be remembered for his many contributions not only to the Agency, highway safety, but most importantly for his friendship.

Please accept my sincere condolences for you and the family. Leo was a remarkable man and everyone at FMCSA/USDOT is better for having known him. For those of us that had the privilege of calling him "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by his kindness and compassion to everyone around him. He will be greatly missed and everyone here is saddened by his death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and his family and friends during this difficult time. With sincere sympathy,
