Leo Fontana, a longtime philanthropist and Antioch businessman, was honored during a rededication of the new water fountain this week in front of Antioch City Hall. Through his Leo Fontana Youth Foundation, the Antioch volunteer helped with numerous local activities and events, including donating to local school sports programs and serving on many boards and organizations. He also was a former city council member and planning commissioner. 'Today our city is firmly cemented in the idea that opportunity lives here,' Mayor Lamar Thorpe said in front of the fountain.
