Leo Terry "Papa Smurf" Hyman
November 17, 1937 - March 08, 2017
Known to many as Papa Smurf, Leo was loved and adored by his surviving family: wife of 28 years, Candace Knopf Hyman, his 6 kids Kevin, Lisa, Deb, Brian, Shayna and David and his 13 grandchildren Matthew, Amber, Sadie, Nick, Savannah, Mitchell, Tyler, Luke, Natalie, Taylor, Riley, Matthew and 6-month old Peyton.
Leo’s huge and genuine smile lit a room instantly and his boisterous personality made him a fantastic Naval officer, soccer coach and salesman. Leo never met a stranger, either professionally or personally; and you didn’t even have to share his love of the Dallas Cowboys. You might have met Leo at the Fair Park Music Hall, the local hockey rink, or his synagogue but he would treat you just . . .
