Leo was born October 25, 1940, on the homestead south of Sutton to Harry and Nellie (Knudson) Overturf. He received his education at Lakeside Country School and graduated from Sutton Public School in 1958. On September 4, 1960, he married Sandy Elfring at Emmanuel Reformed Church in Sutton, NE. He was self-employed as a farmer, rancher and livestock order buyer. He served in the army reserve and was a member of the Sutton American Legion.
Leo was an avid hunter, fisherman, trap shooter and golfer. One of his pride and joys in his life was taking his sons and grandkids hunting for the first time. Over the 50 years of being a sheep order buyer, Leo made numerous lifelong friendships with the people he came in contact with through his sale barn visits. As a farmer, he grew various crops of corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. He was a big supporter of the local 4-H livestock premium auction and Sutton FFA program. In his later years, the Overturf Cattle Company was formed through him and his sons. Leo's passion was raising Charolais-cross cattle.
