After returning home he returned to farming. On June 25, 1953 Leo married Lorraine Cyriacks at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Verdi Township. The couple was blessed with five children and 65 years of life together. They operated a dairy farm between Tyler and Lake Benton, and Leo served on the AMPI Dairy Board many years.
