A Sad Farewell
The Reptile Report - by friend Allen Both:
Today is a very sad day for myself and for the reptile community. I have lost a dear friend and a respected member and pioneer of the reptile industry, Leonard Knapp. He was the father of east coast reptile shows promoting the Eastern Herpetological Expo which started in Sellersville PA as the first Northeast Herp Show. At the time there were few like it and since there has never been a show promoter and reptile enthusiast who cared about his vendors and colleagues like Leonard. Leonard Knapp, devoted husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather; more than amateur herpetologist, committed educator, and faithful disciple of his Lord Jesus, passed from this world into God’s eternal presence early this morning.
Funeral service will be at St. Andrew’s on the afternoon of Saturday, March 22 at a time to be named later. We solicit your prayers for Nancy, and Rhonda and Bethanne and their loved ones.
