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.

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

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.

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.

Condolence from Jamie Pavlicek on February 24th, 2015 3:20 pm

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.

Condolence from Steven Blough on February 24th, 2015 7:57 pm

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.

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.

Condolence from Bob Hlavacek on February 25th, 2015 9:01 am

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.

Condolence from Joan Brown on February 25th, 2015 11:35 am

My condolences for the loss of your loved one, and may you be comforted by Almighty God through his written word the Holy Bible, his letter to the human race for their benefit and instruction John 17:3, so that they may read in it and get to know him because he cares for them and want them to draw close to him he also wants us to know this: Jeremiah 29:11 Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 33:24.
