Thursday, 31 March 2022
The parents of a 22-year-old farmer who took his own life are urging youngsters facing a similar situation to seek help and support.
Leonard Eadon, from Napton, in Warwickshire, died on 1 January 2022.
His parents and friends say Len had been on good form throughout the festive season – enjoying life with no outward signs of any struggles.
“He came home at 4am on New Year’s Day,” says Len’s father, Andy.
“I saw his headlights, waited for him to get out of his vehicle, leaned out of the bedroom window and wished him Happy New Year.
“We had a friendly chat and he went out again. Unfortunately, he never came back.”
