We were all saddened to hear the news of Rich Leon’s passing in July. Rich was a vital part of the Friends activities. He, along with his wife Susie, served on the book sale committee for many years. You could always find Rich upstairs on Wednesdays putting the sorted books on the shelves for the next book sale. Susie and Rich also volunteered at the Whitney Book Corner. We will certainly miss his dedication to the Friends, his quiet way of getting the job done and his dry sense of humor.
