Messages of Condolence

  1. Mike Hartz condolence:

    I met Leo through the BSA. We saw each other at OA and district events. We shared a love of outdoor cooking and shared ideas for meal plans. I haven’t seen him since before I retired in 2007. The world will seem a little emptier without him.


  2. Mary Vogt Howard condolence:

    What a great picture of our Uncle Leo! He was truly a wonderful man! Really one of a kind! We’ll all remember his marvelous stories and memories! We loved him! and will miss him dearly! Love, Mary, Christopher, Alexandra, and Juliet Howard


  3. Ron Starkey condolence:

    Leo taught me a lot during my formative years at Chicago Boiler. I still make references to these lessons in my presentations today. I send my thoughts and prayers to the Leo’s family.


  4. Yvonne Lee condolence:

    I am very sorry for your loss.


  5. Chuck Rummel condolence:

    I first met Leo throught the Boy Scouts and had the honor of working with him in that organization. I would also see him in his volunteer work as a docent at Brookfield Zoo. He always had a great story or interesting fact to share, and his outdoor cooking was always great. May he rest easy with the Great Master of all Scouts.


  6. Jamie Pavlicek condolence:

    We’ve lost a gentleman, scholar and wonderful scouter. I’m sure my husband Ken was there with an eagle scout welcome and a handshake, grateful for another friendly face to share campfire stories with. We’ll miss you Leo, but so happy that you were a part of our lives.


  7. Steven Blough condolence:

    I first me Leo when I was a Scout and he taught me a great deal about Scouting and specifically outdoor cooking. There are still things I can cook in a Dutch Oven that I cannot duplicate in the kitchen. He was a great role model in my life. I will remember him forever.

  9. Richard Jasinski condolence:

    Mr. Dombrowski was always someone I looked up to. He gave me great ideas for cooking at Camp Tomorrow when he and my dad were both Camp Masters. To Steven and the rest of the family my sincerest condolances.


  10. Bob Hlavacek condolence:

    Very sorry to hear of Leo’s passing. It’s been about 25 years since I last saw him, but always remember his presence at various Scouting and OA functions. He was always lending his time, skills, and talents to make the Scouting program fun and exciting while providing his leadership and mentorship to so many young men and helping shape the next generation of leaders. May he rest in peace with our Lord and the other great Scouters that have passed before him.


  11. Joan Brown condolence:
