Born to the late Daniel and Evangeline (nee Cahill) McCardle, as a young boy, Leonard worked the family farm with his parents and eight brothers and sisters.

Known for his strong faith in God, his nightly walks throughout Chelton and Fernwood and his love of swimming daily off Chelton Beach, Leonard was well-known throughout the community. Survived by his sisters, Tizie Zinck and Annie Coughlan, brother David (Mary) McCardle, sister-in-law Audrey McCardle and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents, brothers and sisters Pauline (Gerald) Sheridan, Virginia McCardle, George McCardle, John McCardle and Albert (Hazel) McCardle, brothers in-law Stan Zinck and Terence Coughlan.
