Leonard Joseph Dvorak

He married the love of his life Carole Boriskey on June 7, 1957 at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. He worked on the railroad in his younger years, then farmed and went to work for John Deere Implement in Tama. Prior to retirement, he purchased his own grain truck and hauled for several area farmers. Leonard enjoyed his Casey's coffee club in the morning and afternoon. He also enjoyed tinkering on his John Deere tractors and loved mowing his lawn. His greatest joy was the time he spent with his family.

Survivors include one daughter, Sheryl (Ken) McMurray of Tama; two grandsons, Sean (Casey) McMurray of Bondurant and Shea McMurray of Iowa City; two great-granddaughters, Quinn and Delaney McMurray; one sister-in-law, Libby Dvorak of Chelsea; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Preceding him in death were his parents; his wife, Carole on October 3, 2011; an infant daughter, Judy; and one brother, Milvoy Dvorak.

A memorial fund will be established.
