Leonard Seipp Jr.: 1937-2018


DUBLIN, Calif. — Leonard Melvin Seipp Jr., 80, died peacefully Saturday, March 10, at ValleyCare Hospital in Pleasanton, Calif.

Leonard grew up in Streator, and graduated from La Salle-Peru High School. He was in the Army Reserve stationed at Fort Ord when he met the love of his life and wife of 46 years Marcia.

He was a mold maker at the Oakland Owens-Illinois Glass plant for over 55 years. Leonard was a humble, giving man who was revered by all for his dedication to his family, sacrifice for others and his ability to lead by example.
Leonard is survived by his daughters, Lisa Crowley, of Fernley, Nev., and Lesley Seipp-Ayala; and son-in-law, Rufino (Herbie) Ayala, of Antioch, Calif.; his grandchildren, Kyle Crowley and Brent Crowley, of Fernley, and Devyn Cummings, of Antioch; great-granddaughter, Olyvia Griffin, of Antioch; and sister, Sandra Seipp-Thomas, of Wenona.
His generous loving spirit will be missed by all who knew him.
