The family is most appreciative and deeply grateful with the many spontaneous acts of sympathy & remembrance rendered “Dr. Leo” & his family. However, they would be most grateful for gifts in his memory to Compassionate Care for ALS, 744 West Falmouth Highway, Falmouth, MA 02540.

    We were so sorry to hear of Leo’s passing. We went to IC together. He was in my wife’s class. I was a year ahead. We played sports together. I always enjoyed catching up with him at the reunions. I was so sorry to hear had been stricken with such a horrible disease. The world is a little darker knowing that he is gone.

    My kids – & I loved going to the dentist because of Dr. Corey!
    I was sad when my kids got too old to go to him. He made my autistic son very comfortable. I am truly sorry for your family’s loss. He will be missed May he rest in peace. Prayers & love for your family.

    Dr. Corey took my small child who was terrified of the dentist and earned her trust. She looked forward to her appointments and was devastated when he retired. I only knew his as a dentist and my heart aches. He had an unparalleled ability to work with young children and make them feel safe and respected. My condolences to his family. May he Rest In Peace for eternity. ♥️
