Leonard Earl Flatt, age 63

Leonard Earl Flatt, age 63, of North Little Rock, Arkansas passed away December 7, 2023. He was born in Sheffield, Alabama on November 5, 1960 to Noah Flatt and Easter Magdelene Coosenberry.

Leonard’s mother taught him how to cook at an early age. He was a wonderful cook and earned his living working in a kitchen. Later in life, he took care of residents at a nursing home. Before he retired, Leonard worked in the Alzheimer wing of the nursing home, and he treasured each one of his residents. In his free time, he loved working in his yard and planting beautiful flowers. He also enjoyed going to garage sales. He often said he could, “turn trash into treasures”.

    I remember Leonard as a small kid on my grandpa Cavitt’s farm.. His step dad Lee, his mother Maggie, David, Lillie and Sherrie all chopped and picked cotton… Hard work for small children.. Rest in peace Leonard.
