He would spend over 45 years working there. Leo & his wife began their life together in East Boston, later moving to Revere in 1956. His family was always first. He worked hard to provide for his family which was always his priority. After many years of hard work, Leo & his wife enjoyed traveling around the world. They took trips to Europe, Hawaii, the West Coast, Aruba, the Bahamas, Canada, Las Vegas & Florida. Leo also enjoyed the visiting casinos and the racetrack. He was a horse racing enthusiast. Above all, Leo loved his family. He loved his wife, children, grandchildren & great grandchildren, they were the most important to him.
