Leo’s working life started in the Alberta oil patch with Dresser Atlas, taking a transfer to Russia, Siberia, China, and offshore of Scotland.

Leo discovered his favorite place on earth was Cuba.  With his love for the culture, and having met the friendliest, kindest people, it was his dream was to retire there. Leo loved enjoyed his computer, keeping in touch with world politics, elections, pipelines and oil prices and he loved to “dabble” in the stock market.
