Leitnaker, Sr.; in-laws, Willard and Cleo Scarbro; sisters, Ruth (Jeff) Paddock, Mary (Bill Kelch) Leitnaker, Sara Shaver; brothers, Pete (Sharon) Leitnaker, John (Anne) Leitnaker; sister-in-law, Linda (David) Dietz; many special nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews; fur babies, Yoda and Stretch; along with many wonderful friends.
