Mr. Wren was born July 31, 1951 in Coushatta, LA and passed away January 14, 2020. Leon was a hard worker beginning at the early age of sixteen. He was a kind-hearted man and would give anyone the shirt off his back if they were in need. Leon left this world much richer than the way he entered this life.
He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. He received great joy in teaching the younger kids how to hunt. However, Leon’s real passion was his grandkids. He will be truly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Payton and Ida Jewel Wren; our Mama, Laverne Wren; one sister, Murleen Friday and her husband, Bubba Friday; brother-in-law, Ronnie Eddy; niece, Rebecca Ann Stiles; and great-nephew, Dylan Dingler.
