Leander was the 3rd born into our family. Leander was a funny, caring, and happy person who always wanted to see a smile on his loved ones faces. He always made random and funny remarks. Leander always tried to help whenever he could. He enjoyed watching movies. He would always remember quotes from popular movies and tv shows. He would mention these quotes to make others laugh, just to see a smile on one’s face. Leander enjoyed playing video games and keeping updated on the latest consoles. He enjoyed listening to loud music and driving around with his older brother. Leander loved playing board games with family. He enjoyed it when the family all got together to have fun.
