On Sept. 14, 2018 Leon, age 88, passed away peacefully at home. He was married to his loving wife Arlene for 58 years. Born in Oakland, CA, he graduated from Castlemont High, and attended California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland. He served in U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1951 – 1953. He was a member of No. California Glassworkers Union #169 for over 30 years.
Leon was very artistic and created beautifully landscaped yards in all his homes. He liked nautical surroundings including building and restoring boats. He enjoyed golfing at Discovery Bay while living on the golf course. At Valley Springs, CA he also enjoyed La Contenta golf course. When 1-1/2 acres became too much, Leon and Arlene moved to Oakdale, CA. Here he designed two beautiful yards and all his artistic abilities continued to shine.
He is survived by his wife Arlene; children Leon (Irene), Lynn, Bill, Cheryl and Vikki (Thomas); grandchildren Jacob, Cara, Jeramy, Michelle, and Sara; and seven great grandchildren.
Military Service will be held on Oct. 12, 2018 at 3:30 pm at California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery (CCCVC), 2900 Parker Flats Road, Seaside, CA.
