A Mass of Christian burial for William J. Leonard, a retired ship maintenance foreman, will be offered at 9 a.m. tomorrow at St. Ursula's Roman Catholic Church, 8801 Harford Road, Parkville.

Mr. Leonard, who was 81 and lived on Glenside Drive in Carney, died Sunday at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center after a stroke.

The Baltimore native served aboard merchant ships during World War II.

He is survived by his wife, the former Livia Marcantonio; a son, William J. Leonard Jr. of Carney; three daughters, Vivian Piunti of Towson, Andrea Bryant of Baltimore and Aileen Fields of White Marsh; eight grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
