March 17, 1936 — December 24, 2023

Leon M. North, age 87, passed away on Sunday, December 24, 2023 at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox.

Leon is survived by his beloved wife, Susan North; daughters, Kristen North, and Sheri (Donald) Testin; and his brother Russell North.

He is preceded in death by his mother Dorothy North; and his siblings, Robert North, Norman North, and Elenore O’Bara.

Leon enjoyed life and loved to travel. Along with his wife, Susan, and his daughters, they camped throughout the United States, especially the western states. After his retirement, Lee and his wife would spend the winter months camping in Florida around Disney World. Leon also had a passion for steam trains. Whether that meant model trains, or taking trips to see full sized steam trains, he appreciated them all. He loved his family and supported his wife and daughters in their various activities including dog agility and obedience trials and showing their Palomino horses. He was an army veteran who proudly served his country, serving in Germany after the end of the Korean Conflict. He worked in HVAC, and for over 20 years owned his own company, Lee’s Refrigeration and was passionate about his job. He had several other hobbies, but first and foremost was his love of his family. He will be missed by all who knew him.
