Leo was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and resided in Towson, MD and Whippany, NJ, prior to moving to Morris Plains, NJ, 40 years ago.

Leo graduated from Towson High School in 1958. He then went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 1962.

Leo proudly served his country in the U.S. Army Signal Corp. as a 2nd Lieutenant during the Vietnam War.

Leo was a parishioner of Notre Dame of Mount Carmel Roman Catholic Church, Cedar Knolls.
