Leonard was born on February 15, 1942 at home in Earl, Wisconsin to Fred and Florence (Bagee) Daniels. He attended school in Earl and after completing his education he worked alongside his father in the logging business. In the late 1950’s he moved to the Marshfield area and held various factory jobs over the next several years. In 1971, he moved to the Stratford area where he worked for B&I Lumber until his retirement. In 1987, he built his dream home in the woods outside of Spencer. He loved being outdoors, enjoyed puttering in his shed, mowing lawn, hunting and fishing and spending time with his family and friends. Leonard was an avid Green Bay Packer fan, never missing a game. He adored his grandchildren, always sharing his time, stories and magic tricks with them.
