ELKHART — Leonard R. Jobe Sr., 83, passed away Tuesday, March 26, 2013, after a short illness.

Born Jan. 3, 1930, he was the son of the late Freeman and Lorraine (Rupe) Jobe.

On Nov. 10, 1978, Leonard married Jacqueline (Riley) Poormon. She survives.

Leonard was a very passionate and hard-working man. He was employed as a charter bus driver for Cardinal Buses for more than 20 years. He loved his job and enjoyed meeting new people.
