Upon his discharge from the Navy, Leonardo went back to school and graduated from Texas Lutheran College with a degree in education in 1962. He was a teacher for the remainder of his career primarily in Seguin ISD where he retired.

In serving his community, he started the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Seguin, TX.  He was also a member of LULAC and the American GI Forum. He remained a Mason until his death. In support of the Hispanic community, he worked hard to get Juan Seguin Elementary declared a historical site.
