Leonard was born and raised in Farmington, NM. He attended Farmington schools where he excelled in football, wrestling, and track. Leonard still holds the school record for the 440 relay. Inspired by many exceptional coaches, he chose a career in coaching. After graduating from ENMU, he accepted his first teaching position at Mesa Alta, where he advocated and started the San Juan Basin Jr High Wrestling League. He also taught/coached at Bloomfield High School, Heights Jr High, and Tibbetts Middle School. Throughout his 38 year career he touched and inspired the lives of countless 'dirtbags' and 'doorknobs'.Leonard loved to hunt and fish. He especially cherished the the time he spent with his brother Lloyd and his good friend Art Martinez. When he wasn't out at quality waters, he was watching his grandsons play their many sports. Never turning down a chance to sit in the bleachers all day to watch them wrestle.
