Leo concentrates on photo IDs with Adrian's coach Cigar ever present

The Late Leo Hobaica OD Photographer

The Observer Dispatch and Daily Press have had some great shooters, and Leo was certainly among the finest. His "line" with Dante Tranquille, Steve Roach and others stood tall in photojournalism . Leo recently left us and left a great photo legacy of his work. We photographers rarely get photographed, and that is my quest. Making sure the icons of photography get icons made of them.

I learned a lot from them.
RIP, Leo.!!

You are welcome. He earned every bit and was a great guy...last time I saw him was at a craft /antique show I think at a Clinton high school. Great legacy. Tom
