I would meet up with Leon when ever i had a problem with my blinders, we would meet by exit 101 off 95 near a park, He was a very kind man always there when you needed an answer, Leon it was a privilege to have known you, RIP my friend.

I will definitely miss Leon, He was very sweet so was his life. I was somewhat close with him, i had his cell phone and was able to call him and discuss issues and he always was there to help. He was one of the greatest. He was very Honest and also very giving. I will miss him. I always stuck by Blinder because of him. Now, I do not know who I will Use.

RIP LEON, you are an amazing person.

wow he wasn't that old at all. RIP Leon.
Wow not at all! only in his 50s..... So sad.. Sounds like just one of those freak things that happen when you don't know you're sick and it just hits you all a sudden.

No one thinks about going that young but we just never know. Prayers continuing to go up for his family.

Crazy to hear he grew up right where I did and live. Very sad and unfortunate to hear.

I never met Leon in person but did speak to him on the phone numerous times. He was always friendly and helpful. RIP

I used to communicate with him often, but he kind of fell off the grid a few years ago.

Wow. Just seen this. Prayers to him and Bonnie. Leon was a really good guy I first spoke with in about 2002. He sold me on the new Blinder M10 during that phone call. The rest is CM history for me. Really sad to see another one of the pioneers of lidar jamming is gone. RIP Leon!

Wow...I've spoken to both Leon and Bonnie in the past when I had the HP-905's. Leon tried to help me with updates and Bonnie was able to exchange units w/o issue. He was only about 54 years old. That's way too young. Terrible news. Hopefully Bonnie can carry on.

Re: Sending Prayer's to Leon Gruner's Leon Gruner (BlinderDude) Family

To all of you on the Forum I say thank you for all the prayers! Leon J Gruner Passed away November 9 2016. He had Diabetes and over 70% of his arteries were clogged. Never went to the dr. He was 54 yrs. old. He live and breathed Blinder for almost 16 years this coming march 2017. Working together with him was an honor he taught me a lot and through the years I've grown to love the business myself. With Blinder Denmark's help I will continue to run the company with the integrity we have always had. We are coming out with a new system in February I will make sure I post I'm new to this forum stuff but I will do my best. Again Thank you for your support and hope it will continue.

Welcome to our family, if you need anything from us don't hesitate to ask we are as passionate about this stuff as Leon was and we are always helping each other. I think once you hang around here for a wile you'll get addicted as the rest of us. Looking forward to the new product.
