His parents were John and Agnes Hiltner.  Leander was one of 14 children. He farmed when younger, married first wife Joyce Davis (divorced) and lived out his life in Scandia MN.

Leander enjoyed hunting, the outdoors, tinkering, fixing things and playing his favorite card games Tick and Cribbage with children and grandkids!  He enjoyed playing his concertina and listening to music on YouTube and loved being the center of attention.  He was loved by many and will be greatly missed!
