This obituary brings back really good memories of a great family I was acquainted with when I was very young. My grandmother, Lena Selves, was a neighbor and I spent a lot of time in the Rybolt home. I know Leo will be missed.

Leo Rybolt,
A gentleman, a father, grandfather, great grandfather, husband, friend and my favorite Uncle.
Uncle Leo had a way about him. You automatically felt comfortable in his presence, whether you were sitting around a picnic table enjoying a meal together, or just sitting on his porch enjoying a breeze. He was the kind of man you hope to learn something from—something that you can take from him and let it help you to become a better man. Though I grieve his passing and will miss him. I know one thing is certain. I have a piece of him in my heart, and I am a better man for knowing and loving him.
Rest in Peace Uncle Leo,

Sherman Robinson

I am so sorry for your loss. Loe was a great man and a good teacher, he will be greatly missed. I will always remeber how much he loved going to Little Nashville and coming in to work and telling us how good the shows were.
