Spero Leakos passed away peacefully on March 6, 2020 in Calgary, AB with his family at his side. A beloved father, grandfather, and cousin, who will be remembered by not only family but many others. He was well known for his influence in baseball and left a mark in the hearts of all those he was around. Our family and friends share memories of that positive and notoriously gregarious man that we have all held dear.
