intensely and he was often noted to say that in comparison to our other
daily activities that this was taking the good portion. He had a tremen-
dous knowledge and love of music and practiced many years as a
martial artist. He was like a walking book and often conversed about
African American history, giving tidbits of information that many did
not know. Leon loved being around his family. He was a constant
sharer of wisdom and a great conversationalist to all who knew him.

39 years of marriage. From this union were born 5 children, Leon,
Shara, Daniel, Jonathan and Joshua Trueheart. He was also blessed to
have three other children, LaTonya Trueheart, LaShonya Trueheart
(deceased) and Dewayne Carter.

Trueheart, his granddaughter J ace Trueheart, and his brother Julius
Trueheart.
