Born in Waterloo, Iowa on Dec. 17, 1930, he grew up working dawn to dusk on the fourth-generation Leland family farm with his parents Glen and Maude Leland, and siblings George, LuAnn and Mary Ellen. He loved the farm, having stated, “It was a hard, challenging life with opportunities, responsibility, appreciation, caring compassion and patriotism – realizing there is a power greater than ourselves.” Leland graduated from Waterloo East in 1948, then Iowa State University with honors in 1954, after four great years as a proud member of Farmhouse and a lifelong Cyclones contributor and fan. He then served in the U.S. Army Signal Corp. 1954-57 including being stationed in Germany, and he and Ramona shared many fond memories of their travels in Europe. After returning from Germany, he drove thousands of miles a week on the gravel roads of Iowa as a cattle buyer for Rath Packing to support their young family, but he worked long into the night to graduate from banking school, going on to a 44-year career in agricultural consulting first at Waterloo Savings Bank followed by First National Bank of Muscatine. He was in his element helping people in the farming industry and the lifestyle he loved. Leland was an active and decorated member of 4-H, Future Farmers of America and Boy Scouts (in support of Scott and Todd), and an ordained elder and deacon of the Presbyterian Church, always giving of himself in support of others. He devoted his life to his family. He is survived by Ramona, his high school sweetheart and loving wife of 66 years; Scott and Jane Leland and their son Isaac; Todd and Barbara Leland and their children Audrey, Julia and Henry. A reception in celebration of Leland’s life will be held at Lake Forest Place at a future date to be announced by the family, and all will toast the man who could light up a room and engage anyone he met leaving a smile on their face. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Geneva Foundation of Presbyterian Homes, 8707 Skokie Blvd., Suite 400, Skokie, IL 60077.

In the meantime, he will meet with Vernon prior to writing the music to give Stephenson an idea of how he wants it to sound and mesh with the ensemble. “[What will] happen more than anything, is I will just hear [Vernon’s] personality in his sound, because just like we all have different speaking voices, we all have different sounds on our instruments,” Stephenson said. “I’ll hear his personality and it’ll give me ideas [on how to write the piece].” Normally, Stephenson doesn’t meet with the soloist, because many of the pieces he writes are for people or ensembles not in the area. He’ll write the piece based on what he’s told by the soloist, what he hears off recordings, or with background knowledge he already has. “[Vernon] might just do something totally at random and I’ll be like ‘Oh there we go, I’m going to feature that.’ It’s very important for me to hear how he plays,” he said. “I mean I already sort of have an idea because he’s been in the orchestra a long time and I’ve heard the orchestra. But hearing him up close and personal will be hugely important for me.” Those wanting hear Stephenson’s piece in-person might have to wait until 2019, but it’s worth it. “It’s a dream come true for me, it literally is,” Stephenson said. “When I was in high school, I used to play recordings of the Chicago Symphony nonstop, listening to them over and over again, and so now to get to write a piece... I mean these are the best players, and to get to put music on their stands, written by me is going to be really cool.” Lake Forest the lake forest leader | April 12, 2018 | 21 UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH JENNIFER OCCUPATION: Master Stylist SPECIALTY: Hair extensions, styling, blowouts PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION: Oribe Dry Texture Spray FAVORITE MOVIE: Pretty Woman FAVORITE FOOD: Pizza For more about Jennifer, visit our website. 368 PARK AVENUE • GLENCOE • 847.501.3100 BOOK ONLINE • PASCALPOURELLE.COM
