Dear IOGKF Israel and Mrs. Pantanowitz,
Please accept my sincere condolences, on the huge loss to yourselves and the world of karate.
Leons' presence, his vast knowledge and skills, will be truly missed: but more importantly, they always be remembered by me as a fine and very good Referee. I had the pleasure to do a lot of Championships with him and always had a lot to talk about. We will miss him.
My thoughts are with you.
