I am saddened by the tragic and untimely death of Neocles Leontis – I am saddened for his family, his students and peers at Bowling Green State University, and our community. I wish to extend my most heartfelt condolences to Neocles’ family.
Neocles was a tireless advocate for issues such as sustainability and science, improved housing conditions and social justice. While on City Council, Neocles proved to be a vocal supporter for these issues, devoting countless hours working to improve our community. He made a significant positive impact on both his students and our community and his loss will surely be felt.
