November 2019 Posted in Obituary

A man of great integrity, faith, and love of life passed away Aug. 24 with heart failure.

Born in Santa Ana, California, Gary Leonard and his family farmed citrus and avocados. After marriage in 1958, he moved to Woodlake, California in 1961, and developed a citrus ranch. The family moved in 1975 to St. Helena, California where he was a supervisor for Christian Bros. Vineyards. Upon retirement in 2006 they moved to Silverton.

Gary had many interests: riding trains in the USA and Canada, restoring vintage cars and he spent many days hiking the Sierra Mountains.

Married 61 years to his beloved wife, Jenny, he deeply loved his sons, Mike (Suz), Mark (Judyann), five grand-children and one great-randchild.

He is now with his Lord Jesus and is buried in Valley View Cemetery in Silverton.
