Leo was born July 17, 1941, to George and Rose (Haider) Leingang. He grew up on a farm in St. Anthony and graduated from Mandan High School in 1960. In 1963, he married Arlene Stein. In 1967, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and stationed in Munich, Germany, where his daughter, Robyn, was born.
Leo was a very funny, outgoing man who had great "one liners" and was famous for his "Leoisms." Fishing was a favorite pastime of his, as well as playing card games, especially pinochle and Texas hold'em. Leo was always willing to lend a helping hand wherever needed and he took great pride working at the MDU Heskett Station, Mandan.
He will be greatly missed by his daughter, Robyn Marie Hanson, Moorhead, Minn.; grandsons, Logan and Leo Hanson; sisters, Helen (Bill) Kuntz, Eldean (Bill) Fitterer and Leona (Richard) Wycarus; and brothers, Frank, Raymond (Nell), Bob (Mary Ann) and Ron (Betty).
He is preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Carolyn Bullinger, Janice Fitterer and Janice at 6 years old; brother, Arnie; sister-in-law, Eileen Leingang; and brother-in-law, Richard Bullinger.
