Thank You and We’ll Miss You, Leo Heppner

It is with great sadness that our Havre de Grace friend and photographer, Leo Heppner, was not able to join us this year. He covered our parades and events for many, many years. There will be an empty space for a long time without Leo and his camera catching special moments for us. But our hearts will always be filled with beautiful memories of having known him and experienced his kindness, generosity, and professionalism!

Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly late on July 4th. He will be missed in so many ways …. for his excellent photography, his willingness to do more than expected, and most importantly, his smile and easy manner. Each of us in our Independence Celebration Committee plus the thousands of folks who met Leo at any one of the hundreds – even thousands – of events and activities he covered in Havre de Grace extend our sympathies to his wife Terri and Leo’s family and friends.
