James Ray Leonard, 71, passed away October 1, 2014, in La Marque, Texas. Born in Galveston, Texas, in 1942, "Jim" lived most of his life in Galveston County. He is preceded in death by his parents, George and Louise Leonard; his sister, Norma Leonard Higgins; and his niece, Rosemarie "Peanut" Higgins. He is survived by a daughter, Danna Marie Leonard; a grandson, Robert Omar Canales, Jr; two brothers, John and Michael Leonard and their spouses; and several nieces, nephews, cousins and their families. A family memorial service will be held in Bellville, Texas. Jim was a child of God who faithfully practiced his Christianity. He was helped along his way in life by many people who showed him kindness. His family takes great comfort in knowing he is reunited with Mother and Daddy in Heaven, and we look forward to seeing them all again one day.
