 Worthy Brother Knights
With great sadness I report to you that Brother Bob Leyko, PGK, PFN, has passed to his great reward. He left this world to join the Savior on Friday July 18.  I have talked with the family and they are planning a funeral service for July 30.  However, the arrangements have not been finalized.  Once they are I will contact you with more information. 
I ask that you pray for the repose of his soul and for his grieving family. 
Vivat Jesus!   Ronald O. Bates, Grand Knight . 

Bob was a Charter Member of our council, and Past Grand Knight.  He was also the inaugural "Fish Head" and started our council Fish Fries.  Without his foresight and persistence to establish this important fundraiser, we may not have become the council we are today.  Brother Leyko was also a Fourth Degree Knight and Past Faithful Navigator.  In addition he was very active in the VFW and the American Legion. 
The funeral will be on July 30th.  There will be visitation from 10-11 am with Mass following at St. James.  A luncheon will be served at the Mason VFW following Mass. 
Brothers I ask that you pray for his family and the repose of the soul of Brother Leyko. 
Vivat Jesus!
