Leon then enjoyed his time as a sales agent with Resources Realty in Rumson. Leon was a Rutgers University ’81 graduate and was proud to be a member of the Scarlet R Athletics Club. Leon enjoyed cars, bike riding, tennis, watching college sports, real estate and spending time with his two daughters.
