  • In loving memory of my father Len Manawaroa Leonard who was a real warrior not only in war but in life. Not only did he fight many a tough battle while serving his country but also in life where he fought another huge battle against cancer, sadly dying in 1982 at the age of 58. He never gave up that battle. Strong and steadfast until the end. I'll always remember his beautiful smile and happy outgoing personality. That is why he was greatly loved by so many family and friends. An inspiration. A true gentleman. A true warrior. A true legend. RIP DAD. We love and miss you! xoxoxox
