Leo is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He was preceded in death by father Cecil Edward, mother Mary Lee Cobb, brother Jeff and sister Pearline Brimer and brother-in-law Jean Edward Brimer.
Leo was defiantly a character. If you knew him, you know that he had to be the loudest in the room. He always liked to tell stories and argue with Jennifer any chance he had, and we all knew momma started it! Leo always made things harder but more fun in his own way. He loved crawfish with a cold beer and could cook some mean catfish, making himself the cook of the family. He was such a strong man. He would want everyone to know he died as a result of being stubborn and raising hell for more than five decades. He was a very hard working man in roofing and any kind of construction. He enjoyed being in the woods, and had a passion for hunting, fishing on any lake he could find. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends watching football especially his favorite team, the Saints.
