Leo Cloutier

It is with much sadness that we report the passing of our friend Leo Cloutier on August 23rd, 3:30PM, due to complications caused by cancer, after a long and painful struggle.

Leo was a tireless supporter of the independent service industry, giving of his time and talent to many industry related causes and events. Leo was serving as NESDA Treasurer and Region 5  Director at the time of his passing. For many years Leo traveled to the ESDA summer conferences to promote the industry and to teach the CSM classes. It was our privilege to nominate Leo for membership in  the Electronic Industry Hall of Fame in 2010. It was a testament to the high regard our membership held for Leo that the nomination fee was raised on the spot with individual contributions from the members.  He will be missed.

Condolences may be sent to his wife, Gina, and brother-in-law, Ernie:
