My condolences and prayers for the Leatherwood family as you mourn but also celebrate the life of Sam...I managed to participate in some monthly breakfast with Sam and others, semi regularly, at Perkins restaurant for a few years. Sam could tell a story and keep you laughing. He was an excellent law enforcement officer with the Milwaukee County Sheriffs office for years and a respected man in our community. God Bless you all...

I am sending my deepest condolences to the Leatherwood family. I had not seen Sam since those infamous days at Riverside. I thought he was the kindness guy, and I can see that he carried that quality through out his life just by the comments and pictures about Sam. I remember Ban-Lon shirts and Hai-karate cologne for days ...the signature of Sam...Johnny and Jimmy Taylor his sidekicks. We had fun. May the God of tender mercies be with you all at this time. Bonnie Godley

Diane Guerra left a message on May 29, 2020:
Sam (“Bobo”), you’ve been a special part of our family for as long as we all can remember. Imprinted in our minds are the many times we sat with you in your kitchen or your computer/tv room, especially over the last few years. Someone would add something to the conversation and in your booming voice you’d say, “You got that right!” And we would all laugh each and every time. Our hearts are broken knowing that we will not be able to enjoy your company at family functions or during a visit to your home where we can all vividly recall eating and laughing together. Bobo, you will forever be remembered for being a wonderful husband to Alma, a great father to Sonja and Anthony, and a good friend to everyone you met. You were not just a son-in-law to Ma Bea but a loving son who cared for her to the end. You will be loved, constantly thought of and missed forever. Rest in peace dear cousin and brother. Diane, Juan and Sean Guerra
