Condolence from Bill Hale on June 23rd, 2015 10:06 am

Leon and I were class mates for several years at Fork Union Military Academy, and even roommates in the 7th grade. On behalf of our Facebook group, “FUMA Cadets 1980-1990”, I would like to express our sincerest condolences to Leon’s family. Leon was the guy who was everyone’s friend. He made the seven years I spent at FUMA a little happier and brighter. God bless Leon and his family.

Nicole and Trey- Please accept my family’s condolences with regard to your loss. I went to FUMA(87) and played lacrosse and football with Leon. He was always smiling and full of laughter. He always made us laugh but it was his huge smile that I always noticed about him. I have some old photographs that I will post on Facebook of our lacrosse days. May peace and love fill your souls in your loss.

Nicole, Trey, Miss Connie, The Jennette Family:

So sorry to hear about Lil Leon, . When I worked at Conner’s and he would come in he always was smiling ad up beat. We don’t understand why God takes some of our loved ones at an early age, on he knows, and we just have to say it was his will; even though it seems so unfair. We do have hope that we will be together again with our loved ones. There will be no more sickness, no more tears we will be in a beautiful place. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Rossie, LeAnne, Connie, and Nicole and “Trey” my heart is heavy with sadness over the loss of your loved one. By now you know just how many people loved him and all of you with their sincere messages. He was a fine young man, father, brother, etc. We ALL will remember that beautiful smile of his. I don’t think I ever saw him without it. Your loss is DEVASTATING now but in time (and it takes times) you will start to remember and smile of him as you always did before. Love and prayers to ALL of YOU. Know that you are truly loved by many, many, friends.

Nicole and Trey, life will move forward, it will not get easier, just manageable. Both of you are so blessed to have had not only Leon’s smile but the love that he had for both of you, no matter what, no matter when, no matter what else may have been going on. To be loved like that is a precious gift that will never fade. Our deepest sympathies.

Condolence from CHRISTINE D. WINSLOW on June 23rd, 2015 5:24 pm

As we live, we encounter so many problems that make us feel hopeless and distressed. The worst of our problems is death.Losing a loved one can be devastating because we have a built in desire to live and enjoy life with our family and friends. At these times we need encouragement and hope, so that we can cope with our loss. We can be encouraged by reflecting on the promises that God has given us through His Word the Bible, concerning the hope of seeing our loved ones again. Please read these comforting scriptures at (REVELATION 21:4,5) and (John 5:28,29)

Condolence from Beth Williams on June 23rd, 2015 5:34 pm

I did not know Leon, but I knew Connie and Leon Sr. from my high school days at Hatteras (loved Connie so much!). Years later, my daughter, Bonnie Beck (Anderson), went to school briefly with Rossie when we still lived in Hatteras. Leon Jr. sounds as if he was a wonderful friend to everybody and an all-around great guy. I’m so sorry for the heartache everyone in the family is going through right now. Prayers for peace.

Condolence from Robert Carter Ritchie (Kyle) on June 23rd, 2015 7:16 pm

Leon and I were classmates, and friends at Fork Union Military Academy. I enjoyed serving on battalion staff especially because of the friendship shared amongst the brothers. Leon, of course was the leader amongst leaders. I knew him as a brother who always stood up for the littler guys. He was certainly the most popular in our class because of his warmth, kindness, amazing sense of humor, and general good energy. I’m deeply saddened, amongst with so many others. Just last month Leon’s name came up repeatedly at our Alumni Weekend. He is loved and will be missed dearly by his FUMA brothers.

My deepest condolences to Leon’s family. Our family has you in our thoughts and prayers.

RC Ritchie (Kyle), FUMA 89

Condolence from Todd Gowdy on June 23rd, 2015 7:23 pm

To the family of Leon Jennette- my deepest condolences. I am an addition to Leon’s extended FUMA family, who thought a lot of your son, husband, father.

Leon was a better man, who made all of us better men during our years at FUMA. What a joy it was to know him during that time.

May God’s countenance shine upon us as another great warrior has been added to his army to continue the mission and help watch over us.

Condolence from Michael Hedrick on June 23rd, 2015 7:34 pm

I was sad to hear this, at such a young age make it so hard, I am praying strength and healing for the family.
Twice Leon was at the right place at the right time in my life . Once when I was around 9 yrs old I was swimming at the beach next thing I know I was being pulled under and couldn’t catch my breath. I was in a rip current I thought I was going to drown but next thing I know a hand grabs me and pulls me it out, it was Leon. Til this day when ever I hear the words rip current I’m reminded of Leon. I saw a post the other day that explained what to do in rip current and less then a week ago, made me think of the day Leon saving me .Then years later at a party with friends a guy tried fight/hit me about that time Leon walked in the room when he seen what was going on he went over threaten the guy and after that the guy left. He was alway nice person and I way there for me several times in my life. He truely will be missed, I was blessed to know Leon.

Condolence from Patrick Montague on June 23rd, 2015 11:41 pm

My heartfelt condolences to those who knew and loved Leon. We attended Fork Union Military Academy together. He had a great sense of humor, quick wit and a grin that light up the room. However, the trait I most admired was his kindness and compassion toward others. He treated everyone well. I recall several tense situations that were diffused by Leon – probably by cracking a joke and flashing a huge grin!

You occasionally meet a person that makes you feel better about yourself after spending time with them. Leon was definitely one of those people.

I pray that you find peace and comfort in this most difficult time.

Condolence from Steve Whitley on June 23rd, 2015 11:43 pm

Big love, Leon. Rest in peace. God’s speed.

I just learned of Leon’s passing today,7/30/15.
I think he was the Kellogg’s delivery driver that brought me a load lumber to Ocracoke two years ago to build a shed for my daughter .He went out of his way to help this 70 year old move heavy plywood to the site where the truck could not fit. He was a very nice fellow,and I’m sure he will be missed by many. Jerry Kelley,Lancaster,Pa.
