Dear Pat, Jerry and Jennifer I respond on behalf of all of the members, present and past of the Texas Cushman Club. We offer our sincere condolences to you on your loss of Leon. As a charter member of our club we recognized his membership number as # 3. He was a significant force in our club from beginning to present. We will also miss his presents within our group. Additionally I also have admiration for his ingenuity with the scooters. At a time when most members had dim views of modification of any of the Cushman Scooter Leon saw what was to become the saving grace of our club by putting a lawn mower engine on his Eagle. I followed his lead and did the same. That was a long time ago and it has now proved to be a change that moves us forward and even the most traditional of our membership now ride Cushmans Eagles with LAWNMOWER ENGINES. I know Leon is having his, I told you so, moments as he looks down on all of us. So from us all God Bless, Richard Kesselus President TCC Inc.
