Burial will follow in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. Visitation with the family will be from 5pm until 8pm on Thursday, December 28, at Higgins Funeral Home.

Leeo was born December 26, 1952, in Huntsville, AL to the late Oscar Floyd and Dollie Jeanette Hyatt Moon. He attended Walnut Grove school and graduated from Flintville High School in 1972. During his working career Leeo spent time working for Cooks Pest Control, Martin Stove, and Goodman where he worked for 30 years and retired. Leeo was a staple of the community and enjoyed coaching multiple youth teams over the years.

Leeo was a dedicated father and grandfather whose greatest loves in life were his daughter and grandchildren. He was a Christian attending Baptist churches the majority of his life, a talented piano player, and loved bluegrass and gospel music with all his heart. Leeo was a giving person who loved to hear people laugh and loved the outdoors and was an avid fisherman. One of Leeo’s favorite things to do was research his ancestral and local history within Lincoln County and abroad and share it with the community any chance he got. He passed away December 24, 2023, at HH Lincoln Health in Fayetteville.
