We are saddened to learn of the passing of one of our founding members, Leon Morris Cohen. After serving in the United States Air Force, Leon returned home to Houston, Texas to join his father-in-law’s business, Levine Supply Company. Later, Leon left to launch his own company, Jones Supply Company and later Cohen Industrial Supply Company. During these years he excelled at selling pipe, valves and fittings to underground utilities and oilfield contractors. He was well-known in the industry and was loved by all his employees, customers and vendors. Leon retired from the company in 2014 and was the father of Leslie Cohen one of NAPF’s recently appointed Board members.
