Our Hearts are forever broken

Leo William Browne, 59 years old, of Placentia

Born  July 10, 1959

Died  April 6, 2019


Leo married Veronica, the true love of his life, on December 3, 1983, and they raised their beautiful children, Mollie and Leo, to be the same loving people that they are themselves.  Leo has two grandsons, Michael Browne, 8, and Leo Browne III, 11 months, who will love and miss their Granddad forever.  Leo loved Mollie's husband Ryan (Greeley), and Leo Jr's wife Samantha (Pickett), as if they were his own.  Leo lived for his family and he always said that the best part of his day was his morning spent having tea and a chat with Veron.  Leo also leaves behind his mother, Geraldine Browne, and a large family of brothers and sisters, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law as well as other family and friends.  His coworkers with whom he shared a genuine love and respect, will  also miss him.  Anyone whose path was fortunate enough to cross with Leo's, knows our great sorrow and loss.  Leo loved his life.  He did not want to go.  He fought hard and he fought well.  In life, Leo taught us how to live, and in death he taught us how to die with courage and dignity.  His love will live on.  Visitation will take  place at Coombs Funeral Home,on Monday from 2:00 - 6:00,  followed by a celebration of his life on Monday from 6:00 - 9:00.  Funeral Mass will take place at Sacred Heart Church, Placentia on Tuesday, at 10;30 A.M.  Interment will take place in Coombs Memorial Cemetery, Southeast.
