    I am very sadden to hear about the loss of Dr. Leo. He was my GP 21 yrs ago, and he saved my life. He was a great doctor, but also a great man. This world has truly lost a great person. I missed him a great deal when he left the Davis Kaiser facility.

    Greg was truly one the kindest men I have known in my life. His life truly made a positive impact that has spread far and wide. His familiy, friends, colleagues, patients and the environment have all been blessed by his presence. For me personally, I could never have thanked him enough for the love and time he shared with my 3 children, his God children. I will never forget the look of pure pride and joy as he walked my daughter down the isle. A special, special man. He will be so dearly missed and always held in the hearts of all who truly loved him.

    I just learned of Greg's passing and know that all of us have lost a wonderful doctor, colleague and friend. I first met Greg many years ago when I joined Kaiser Permanente in 1979. Greg was already a sought-after physician both through his work in the Emergency Department and Family Practice. In addition, all he did for his Davis community was truly remarkable. Many of us benefited from his wisdom and counsel. His smile, positive 'can do' attitude and endless 'great to see you, how are you doing' greeting is what I will remember most about Greg. I know that his patients understand the caring he brought to all he did. For myself and I know many others we have lost a wonderful and caring human being. Farewell my good friend and mentor in medicine and life. Jack Rozance. Physician-in-Chief,The Permanente Medical Group, Sacramento/Davis 1994-2012

    I just found out about Greg's passing. I am shocked and extremely saddened by his loss. He changed our lives by giving us an opportunity to start a life with our three children in Floriida. I have never met anybody so auturiistic and kind to the very core. One time I was once again asking him one of my medical questions and I said I hope I'm not bugging you. He laugted and said "I hope never to be rid of your questions" no bother at all. I was forever changed in my beliief in mankind. He was truly good. He will be sorely missed by all I'm sure. Anybody he touched could not have gone away without the immense blessing of knowing him. Faith & Michaell
