Leonard, known by many as the Candlemaker kept busy all his life. In his early years he became a very good salesperson buying and selling, attending flea markets all over the map. Upon his years of sales, he met many wholesalers that led him to open his thriving business in Richibucto “La Coquille”, he served many locals with great deals and also had Vautour Trailer Sales that served him well. Illness brought all this to an end. Leonard’s candle making was part of him from beginning to end.
Rest easy Candlemaker.
