    He had been making some AR parts, and then I think he had his own knock-off I think?

    Obviously tho - he had MUCH bigger parts going on recently.

    I seem to have lost his website info in the last 'putor crash.

    Rest in Peace Willeo, hopefully there is a shop full of new equipment up there to play with. Wishes to the family in this difficult time.

    Shocked.

    Cant believe he was / died that young. He was only half a decade younger than me.

    To his credit, I always had him pictured as a Wise Old Owl. Its a special gift when you can give that aura, of being wise well before your years. He had it.

    R.I.P Leo, and I might as well re-quote Phil as his post just about sums up all I that can say:

    Sad news this morning!

    I would have never guessed I was a year older than him or that we graduated the same year. Phil said it best!

    My condolences to family and friends!

    RIP willeo

    Phil said exactly what I thought. I always respected and learned something from his words. They say only the good die young. R.I.P. Willeo.

    Rest in peace Leo. Although we never met in person, the years I have spent here on PM reading his posts has been time well spent.

    Reckon it was the bad flu that has taken so many this winter?

    Has anyone signed the guest book as of yet ?

    When I first found the Obit, I no one from PM had.

    As his obit specifically called out PM, I think
    it would be nice to the family to know just how many
    people read his words.

    Haven’t been on PM lately so I was shocked to see this when checking in. He seemed to be a quality individual with a good heart. I’ll miss him. Surely, he was taken too early.

    Possibly not easy as a new guy with only 8 posts. It's never easy to report these things. 8 or 8,000 posts. Let it be known, your post was appreciated.

    Best Regards. Phil,
