Leonard Sitzer

(1918-2014) As a lifelong resident of Northeast Arkansas, Leonard Sitzer dedicated his life to the agriculture and wildlife that was crucial to the community in which he resided.

He believed strongly in the importance of stewardship of the land and carefully managed the flooded timber duck woods that he owned near Bayou DeView. His commitment to conservation was recognized by both Ducks Unlimited and the National Turkey Federation to which he was a lifetime member of each.

In 2008, at the age of 90, he was honored by the Arkansas Wildlife Federation by being named Conservationist of the Year for a lifetime dedicated to the preservation of Arkansas’s precious wildlife.

Sitzer was also inducted into the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2010.
