It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Joseph E. ‘Bud’ Leonard on August 7, 2020. Survived by his wife of 39 years Honi Huyck. Son of the late Joseph and Helen (nee Lowry) Leonard.
Also survived by his sister Barbara Jean Patterson; Bud's treasured nieces, Sequoia and Banyan (Huyck Lehman) and nephews, Andrew, and Eric Patterson.
Bud loved all things basketball/sports. He was known as "coach" and a mentor to many young men and women in Windsor-Essex County and Ontario.
Bud's second delight was singing. As a member of the Sun Parlour Barbershop Group in Windsor, he spent many hours practicing and singing in Windsor, across Ontario and the U.S.
Following Bud’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Kendrick Funeral Home, Kingsville.

Private Condolence

Im so saddened to hear of Mr Leonard's passing and wish to send my condolences to his family and friends. Mr Leonard was my geography teacher at BRDHS. I'll never forget the first day when he pointed out that my seat was the exact spot of the center of the universe lol making me the center of the universe. He was such a funny man and an amazing teacher to so many. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten.

I’m saddened to read of the passing of a great man. I will never forget his kindness and direction he provided me in High School. If you met him, you never forgot him. Sending my heartfelt condolences.

He was my favourite teacher! He would come into Valu-Mart all the time and tease me, all in good fun! He was such a great man! My heart is breaking for his family! My thoughts and love are sent their way. Rest in paradise!

Our deepest condolences on the passing of Mr. Leonard! My goodness, no words can describe how sorry we are to hear this news. Mr. Leonard was my high school Geography teacher; his passion for teaching and love for the students was quite clear. I remember his love for basketball. I remember his love for people. I have very fond memories working at the local grocery store where Mr. Leonard and Honi would often shop... Honi, I am not sure if you remember me but we would have great conversations and the two of you had wonderful stories to share after his retirement. His continued involvement with coaching basketball and traveling (specifically to Hawaii) is what I remember most. I have so many wonderful memories from that time. My most recent encounter was a few years ago, in hospital, he was there for a procedure and I couldn’t believe it - Mr. Leonard! So happy to have run in to the two of you again. He shares the same birthday as my recent late grandfather, making this news tug more at my heart strings. Again, I am so sorry Honi and family on this great loss. Mr. Leonard, may you Rest In Paradise.
All Our Love, Your Former Students, Gillian Cervi & Vince Gagnier
