He spent his younger years in the Willey community and attended St. Mary’s School, also in Willey. After his formal education Leon began his working life as a carpenter in the Willey area. He then was hired as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service, a position he held for over 25 years until his retirement. After his retirement Leon delivered cars for Lou Walsh Automotive. Leon enjoyed road trips, and his journeys to Las Vegas. He enjoyed watching and cheering on his beloved Chicago Cubs. Most of all Leon enjoyed sitting on the porch, and visiting with the neighbors. Leon is survived by his siblings: Edward Pletchette of Carroll, and Anita Dorski of Des Moines; as well as his nieces, and other extended relatives. Leon was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers: Eugene, Ronald, and Bernard Jr., Pletchette; and his sister, Freda Pletchette.
