“Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.” – “His Journeys Just Begun” by Ellen Brenneman
With a sad and heavy heart we advise that Brother Leonard Loza passed away Sunday, April 26, 2020 at the age of 72.
Greg Loza (son) advised that his dad, our brother, passed away peacefully and will be missed by his family and many friends. Len’s family will be having a grave side service for him. Unfortunately due to the current coronavirus situation and accompanying regulations there will not be many people allowed to attend. The family plans to have a memorial service at the Holy Trinity Church once the social distancing situation is over. R.I.P. Brother Leonard. We miss you so much each and every day . . .
