going back 40 years who were the baddest guys in mason county? Im talkin men you did not cross.

Leo calandros was one but there were others back in the seventies eighties nineties and now.

Ask gramps who the worst were. People say its worse today but i think we always had bad guys.

I cant remember the guys name but there used to be a man who hung out at Leo's that I never liked. I never trusted him. He was a big guy with dark hair. I always thought he had some shady dealings going on.

Who did he run with? I heard about a couple of fights he was in. Was he the one that busted up two or three guys in one night? I heard about a fight where Leonard busted someone in a bar, then later when he was wasted, several men attacked him, and he still got the best of them. Maybe that wasn't him, it's been awhile since I heard the story.

LOL, glad I never met him. Was he that mean when he was sober? Seems like so many of them were hot tempered. I used to hear the stories, but forgot many of the names. One I heard about was ol Chew, don't know what his real name was, but heard he had a temper too.
I wouldn't of wanted to tend bar with customers like that.

some were nice when they were sober, but some of those bar fighting guys were not so nice to their own families, even when they were sober.

well Leo would fight i saw him knock a few guys out but he would have you killed if you cross him that's for sure.
JIMMY LEONARD was a good guy any time he just would not take any crap off anybody i saw him take out 3 guys at a time by him self i run with him for awhile off and on.
SAM PATTERSON was a but guy for fighting he would take on about anybody he won some and lost some but he would keep coming back sam and leo never got along to good.
there was a guy called Tommy SPENCER he was right up there with the best nim and bobby German to of a mind love to fight and raise hell.
i knew them all we all run together in the good old days i have seen them cut up and shot up and still keep going you know the new guys think they are bad but if they was back then they would maybe lasted a week and they would been killed or hurt real bad like jimmy he would cut you in a heart beat and Cary FINLEY i saw him shot 6 times with a 22 and still beat the guy up them was the good times poker game in back of smoker pool room big money i won some but lost more red IKER was the dealer some times i miss them. and by the way THE HUDDLESTONS was nothing and the MC DADES NOT MUCH.
