Ross James Leonard, 60, died Friday, February 28, 2013 while on vacation in Pearland, Texas. He was born March 11, 1954 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the late James X. Leonard and Martha Schwartzbeck.
Ross was a devoted husband, loving step-father, grandfather, brother, and loyal friend. He was a man that had as much wisdom as he did heart. He had an infectious smile that could warm even the coldest of rooms, and darkest of days. With a strong will and a great heart he will be missed by many.
He is survived by one daughter Virginia B. Shaffer; one granddaughter Jessica Shaffer; two of three sisters, Alison Stokes and Lisa Baker; and one brother Anson Leonard.
