He was a longtime actor with many roles in film and TV, but he is perhaps best known for the 1970 film 'Kelly's Heroes' and his recurring role as Uncle Leo on 'Seinfeld'


"Jerry, hello!"

Leo wasn't a Seinfeld lol
He was the brother of Jerry's mother Helen (making him the brother-in-law of Jerry's dad Morty), but it was never mentioned what Helen's maiden name was, or what Leo's last name was.  He did have a son named Jeffrey who worked in the Parks Dept.

I remember that episode at the dinner table where Jerry talked about the ponies.
