– James R. Leonard, Jr. Jim was always wiling to lend an ear. Listening
abilities made him the ideal guidance counselor at Salem Co. Vo Tech. As a
Leonard, football was in his genre: Sunday football united the generations. He
suffered form polio as a boy, but still managed to become a feared center. He
loved the Eagles and look forward to a Phillies repeat. Being a supportive dad
and Pop Pop was job one: “I’m not going to tell you what to do, but” he’d say
and he was always first at the door with soup and Jell-o for sick grandkids.
He had South Jersey sand in his shoes: he loved his homestead on Route 322,
farmed and worked as a broker to area farmers. It bound him to the land: he
knew where the eagles nested, the hawks flew and ducks swam. The wit with
which he delivered his never ending stream of jokes, his knowledge of trivia,
and grasp of history highlighted his intellect.
Survived by those he loved
best; daughters, Barbara Ridinger (Steve) and Dee Hackett (Josh), son James R.
3rd, his sister, Ann McFadden and grandchildren: Jamie, Joshua, and
Kristopher Hackett, Rachel, Stephanie, and Daniel Petrille.
