    Thank you, DK, for posting this.

    My father passed peacefully...and while I grieve beyond words, he is at peace, in the arms of God.

    Thank you for your kind words, and your heartfelt prayers. It has been a difficult time, made easier because of folks like you, and those here who've supported me throughout these last few months.

    God Bless you all.

    Good journey Mr. Lesser. Looking at his body of work, I recall watching him on tv when I was growing up. He appeared on quite a few of our regular shows back then.

    Rest in peace. UNCLE Leo was my favorite character on Seinfeld. I adored him. I always laughed whenever I saw him. I think he made the show. I loved every bit of his career. He also produced a fine daughter...

    HCats, Bless you and yours. I did not know Uncle Leo was your dad. I am glad to know he went in peace. Peace be with you now too and your family.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Lesser

    Love and blessings

    You're very welcome, I didn't want to make reference to you until you were ready, but he deserved a thread right away. I'm glad you are finally able to let the cat out of the bag. The articles on him have been very nice, and your statement on behalf of the family was terrific!!!!

    Michele is, indeed, the daughter of "Uncle Leo" (as he is most famous for.) She is not making that up. Michele has been nothing short of awesome taking care of her dad during his final weeks, and has been chronicling it in the Jury Room like a real trooper.

    I am so thankful for all the support you have given me; this has been a journey that, while expected, was nothing short of the hardest thing I've ever done, bearing gifts along the way, and also pain.

    I miss my Daddy so much. I can't describe how the outpouring of love for him, and recognition of his work throughout the years, has brought comfort to me; all over the web people are thinking and praying and laughing about my Dad, and that would've made him soooooo proud and feel so blessed.

    He was an amazing man in every way.

    Best-
    Michele

    A fond farewell to 'Uncle Leo'... I join scores of others in paying tribute to you, the well loved actor who gave us a gift of laughter... and feel privileged to have been allowed a more personal glimpse of you, the much adored, meatball-hurling Daddy of HC. RIP, dear Sir.
