In Loving Memory of Leonard Allen Geissel

Leonard led a fulfilling life, touching the hearts of all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. He pursued his education, obtaining a bachelor’s degree, and went on to create a life filled with love and laughter.

He shared a close bond with his brothers, Michael Geissel, Glenn James (Sheila James), and his sisters, Debra Geissel Gibbons (Jeffrey Gibbons) and Loris James, all from Bakersfield, California. Furthermore, Leonard leaves behind his stepfather Ward A. James.
