Leon Chandler passes away

Leon Chandler, who worked with the Cortland line company for over 50 years, passed away on March 18 due to complications from kidney cancer. He was 81 years old.

He was vice president of Cortland when he retired back in 1992, and spent most of his working and retired life as an ambassador of sorts for our sport.

He frequented many bulletin boards under the screen name of Comparadun. Condolences go out to his surviving family and all friends who knew him well.
