On December 19, 1954 Leopold was united in marriage to Shirley Coe in Quebec, Canada. Together they raised five children.

Leopold was known to collect many things. His favorite saying was “I might need that someday.” He liked saving everything and did a great job of repurposing things. He was a well rounded handy man. Leopold was a caring and loving man. What he enjoyed most of all was spending time with his family. He also volunteered his time driving seniors to appointments and helping others in need.

Leopold is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years Shirley Poirier; four children Janet (Robert) Olson, Leopold Poirier, Anita Kerr and Claudette (Kris) Brady; nine grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
