My grandparents immigrated to the United States from Abruzzo, Italy in the early 1900’s.
Their original name, Leopardi, was changed to Leeber when they arrived. They, like so many others came to this country in search of opportunity. I have great admiration for my grandparents courage, hard work and determination to make a better life for themselves and our family. Because of my strong desire to honor them as well as my Italian heritage, in 2010, I proudly took the Leopardi family name as my own.
