He was born in Chicago, IL on Good Friday April 10, 1925; son of the late Walter and Stephanie (Olkiewicz) Bialkowski. Leo married his wife Barbara on September 9, 1952, in South Bend, IN and she preceded him in death on June 30, 1997. Leo is a WWII veteran who always told stories about walking across Italy.

He shared all the produce with family and friends.
