Orville Lee "Leo" Leoffler, 1/5/1918 ~ 11/1/2012

Ruth Hall Leoffler, 91, passed away Tuesday, October 30, 2012, and Orville Lee "Leo" Leoffler, 94, met her on that "other shore" Thursday, November 01, 2012.

Leo was born January 5, 1918, to Albert Leoffler and Olla Belle Leoffler, in St. Louis, Missouri.

Mama and Daddy met while working at Sears in Beaumont, Texas. Ruth had a bet with one of her co-workers as to who would get a date with the new handsome stock boy. Our mama, Ruth, won that bet and Daddy was the luckiest man on earth. They celebrated seventy-one years of marriage on October 1, 2012.

Leo proudly served in the United States Army during World War II and after being discharged worked for Southern Pacific Railroad until retirement in 1978. Leo and Ruth then moved from Beaumont to Kirbyville, Texas where they developed and operated "Leoffler Springs" Spring Water Company.

Leo is survived by his daughters, Kathryn Deorsam and her husband, Larry; Linda Taylor; Jennifer Tice and her husband, Cliff; and Diane Rochelli and her husband, Phil; grandchildren, Brian Deorsam, Carrie Deorsam, Erin Taylor Hassell and her husband, Dr. Jonathan Hassell; Dr. Rachel Rochelli-Charles and her husband, Brett Charles; and Kathryn Rochelli Barker and her husband, Dr. Jared Barker; great-grandchildren, Kaylee Rochelli and Benjamin Barker; and Leo's sister, Ina Mauldin.

Leo is preceded in death by his wife, Ruth and his parents; sister, Loretta Fuller; his brother, Uriel Leoffler; his sister, Mildred "Mickey" Mack; son-in-law, Henry Taylor; nephew, Rodney Mack; and niece, Darla Case.

Leo and Ruth's funeral service will be 10:00 a.m., Saturday, November 3, 2012, at Broussard's, with interment to follow at Oak Bluff Memorial Park, Port Neches.
