Deceased was an industrious man and was an expert in various lines of work. He was quiet and unobtrusive in his manner and well liked.
He leaves two little boys, Lester and Glenn, also his parents, one brother, Leroy, in the army in France, and one sister, Mrs. Wm. Weast.

(Correction note from Karen Schauf)
I do believe you have spelled Leon's family name wrong. There is a "d" in his last name. Also you have the wrong date of birth for him. He was born in 1886. If he was born in 1896, he would have been 14 when he married and I do not think that was the case.
I know that sometimes the newspaper that you transcribed from is wrong but I wanted to put in the correct name and DOB.
