Leonardo Eslinger Obituary

Leonardo Mason Eslinger, a sweet and loving five-year-old who was full of life and known for his amazing laugh, passed away December 31, 2023, surrounded by family, at the New Orleans Children’s Hospital. Leo was tragically killed in what is believed to be a preventable and forewarned situation, forsaken by the legal bureaucracy.

Leo was born November 22, 2018, in Evansville, IN, to Joseph Eslinger and Sara (Irons) Eslinger. He enjoyed Pikachu, playing with blocks, and especially loved Chase from Paw Patrol.

Leo is survived by his two younger siblings, Serena and Jonah Eslinger, who are also believed to be victims of the inaction of the bureaucracy. He is also survived by his parents; grandmother, Sherri (Robinson) Eslinger; grandfather, John Eslinger; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

Memorial Contributions may be made to aid in the funeral costs, preserve Leo’s legacy and prevent similar tragedies. 

Donations can be made at Boone Funeral Home, at any Old National Bank location, or on LeosVoice.org. Please reference Leo’s Voice.
