Leonard J. Osterloh was called home to heaven on August 2, 2018. May he rest in peace no longer sick, tired or weary. He was loved and will be missed and mourned. He was born on May 24, 1941 to Mary (Kobes) and Lloyd Osterloh in Davenport, Iowa. He graduated from Green Bay West High School in 1960.

When the downtown Yonkers store closed, he retired to gardening and tinkering with cars. He had a passion for photograph, music, the outdoors and camping. Leonard was a devoted father and grandfather. He had patience abound and placed others before himself; he was always there to lend a helping hand or watch his many grandchildren. He was loved and with deep sorrow will be sadly missed.
