Born in Monroe County to Mr. & Mrs. Robert L. Cooper, Leonard entered the Marines following his education. He was deployed to Vietnam in August 1969. October 18, 1969, his company was returning from a road building detail in Quang Nam Province when his jeep hit an anti-personnel mind and he was killed. He was survived by his wife, Susan; daughters: Michelle and Mary Jo; and his mother and step-father, Mr. & Mrs. W.R. Whitis.
