By Firefighter Kevin Carr
November 27, 2022

Gregory Allen Leonard, 33 of East New Market passed away November 26, 2022 at his home with his beloved wife Abby by his side after a long hard-fought battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Greg was born on February 7, 1989 in Salisbury Maryland to Bill and Mary Leonard.

He graduated from Cambridge South Dorchester High School in 2007. He then received an Associate’s degree from Wyo Tech in Blairsville PA in Business Management and I-Car certifications in collision repair and street rod fabrication. After graduating, Greg worked for Jess Jr's & Sons Body Shop, Russell Paving and Tire World. In 2015 he landed his dream job as a firefighter for Anne Arundel County Fire Department. Greg worked there until his unfortunate diagnosis of ALS in March 2021. Greg also worked at the Cambridge Hyatt and with Lewis Security.

On October 17, 2014 Greg married Abby Horseman. Their marriage blessed them with two amazing sons Dash and Kip. He was a loving and caring father who cherished every minute with his sons, and he was proud of the young boys they were becoming.

Greg always had an eye for detail and perfection, and in 2019 he started Five Alarm Woodworx where he crafted American flags, Maryland Flags and other signs with an artistic touch.

Greg was a life member of Rescue Fire Company, which he joined as a cadet in 2004. He was a member of the International Association of Firefighters Local 1563, and a member of the Anne Arundel County Emerald Society, along with Anne Arundel County Motorcycle Group 1563.

Greg was able to make others laugh. He was an infectious person who was able to draw out the best in others. His memory will forever live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him.

Besides his wife Abby, Greg is survived by two sons, Dash and Kip, his mother-in-law Lanise (Todd) Mohn, father-in-law Kenny (Daniel) Horseman, his brother-in-law Spencer Horseman and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that helped do whatever was necessary to help him and his family without hesitation during this difficult time. He also leaves behind his best friend, his dog Bentley.

Pallbearers will be Brad Walters, Eric (Earl) Russell, Alex Horseman, Benny Horseman, Rob Russell, Stevie Conn, Patrick Weber and Ryan Dow. Honorary Pallbearers will be Mike Dorsey, Jack Browning, Tom Radcliffe, Jared Lineweaver and Rob Travers.

A funeral will be held on Thursday, December 1, 2022 at 12pm at Cambridge Rescue Fire Company, 8 Washington Street, Cambridge, MD 21613 with Pastor Gary Hickman officiating. A viewing will be held from 10am to 12pm. Class A uniforms requested. Burial will be private for his children at a later date.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to Anne Arundel County Firefighters’ Emerald Society at 1649 Colony Rd, Pasadena, MD 21122 or Rescue Fire Company, C/O Greg Leonard ALS Scholarship Memorial Fund P.O. Box 776, Cambridge, MD 21613. Arrangements are in the care of Thomas Funeral Home, P.A. in Cambridge.

My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2014, but was diagnosed in 2016. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn't walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then I decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Tree of Life Health clinic. It has made a tremendous difference for me ((Visit www.healthcareherbalcentre.com) ). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others. ]

My grandma has Lou Gehrig’s disease, she is about 75 years old it was diagnosed 2 years ago. Right now it’s getting more difficult to live for her, because of stiff muscles she can’t even move. Riluzole and Edaravone medicines are given, but won"t give much relief. She can"t eat food without choking. I thought this might be the last stage and the medications she was given did not help at all, so I started to do alot of research on natural treatments, I was introduced to Health Natural Centre and their ALS Herbal Protocol. She started on the ALS/MND Treatment last year, her symptoms gradually diminished including her vocal cord spasm, Body Weakness and Difficulty with swallowing. Reach them at healthnaturalcentre.org , She is getting active again since starting this treatment, she is able to walk again ( down the street and back )she have also resumed exercising to strengthen muscles!! God Bless all ALS Caregivers. Stay Strong, take small moments throughout the day to thank yourself, to love your self, and pray to whatever faith, star, spiritual force you believe in and ask for strength. I can personally vouch for these remedy but you would probably need to decide what works best for you.
