Leonard was born on November 8, 1935, in Mandan, the son of George and Eva (Berger) Boehm. He grew up and attended school in Mandan.
On November 8, 1955, he married Dolores Lang at St. Mary’s Church, Bismarck. Following their wedding, Leonard went on to attend meat cutting school in Toledo, Ohio. He worked for Cloverdale and local grocery stores as a meat cutter before purchasing the HiWay Grocery Store in Linton. In 1977, they returned to Mandan, where Leonard founded, owned, and operated his family business, Village Marts, in Mandan and Bismarck. After retirement, he worked for Walmart and Sanford.
Leonard loved being in the company of people and was a father figure to many. He had a talent of making people feel comfortable and was well respected for the care and help he provided family, friends, and even strangers. He enjoyed playing golf, bridge, dancing and traveling. He was a member of the Mandan Chamber of Commerce and also served as a volunteer firefighter. His greatest joy was being surrounded by his family and spending time with them.
