Condolence From: Chris Mamunes
Condolence: The Knights of Columbus Council #13069 was blessed to have Leo as a member. I was Grand Knight when Leo joined and attended the ceremony at St. Augustines. He was always ready to help in supporting Catholic good works, cheerfully selling raffle tickets or handing out tootsie rolls. His efforts raised money for St. Peter's Learning Center, Apostleship of the Sea, Courage Lion and many other worthy causes. That was Leo, he never lost sight of his roots in Pennsylvania and had great compassion for the less fortunate. I'm half Slovak and I always greeted Leo with a Yach se mache. (The only Slovak I know). He would reply with a sentence or two. We joked the Council was blessed to have 2 Slovaks. I know he loved his family very much and was a true Catholic Gentleman. My condolences to Gloria and the entire Sofianek Family.

Condolence: Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sofianek family. Leo was a good friend and work colleague so many years ago, and his friendship and mentorship was so very much appreciated during our early years in government service. He was always willing to openly share his own knowledge and experiences which was so helpful to us. He was a fun guy to work with - he never took himself too seriously. We were fortunate to have him in our lives. Thank you, Leo. May you now Rest In Peace. - Rich and Linda Sunday

Condolence From: L.N.
Condolence: I’m sorry doesn’t seem like enough to express our condolences for the loss of your dear husband, father, grandfather and friend. Although words fail us, God can never fail us. May he comfort you and help you to endure and grant you immeasurable peace until death is a thing of the past and all of our sorrows are finally no more. (Revelation 21:4)
