Leonard Norman Biss, Jr.
Devoted husband of the late Gloria Biss, found peace in his home in St. Helena, CA on August 13, 2013. Leonard, a native of San Francisco, CA was born on January 10, 1933 to Leonard Norman Biss, Sr. and Margaret (McKenna) Biss. Leonard is survived by his two children, Leonard N. Biss III of Marin and Deena Biss Kurz of Lafayette, and five grandchildren, Hannah Biss, Leonard N. Biss IV, Kellen Biss of Marin, and Lauren Kurz and Jordan Kurz of Lafayette. Also survived by his brother Ken and his wife Judi Biss. Leonard is a graduate of Balboa High School Class of 1951, and went on to serve in the Navy. He was a true family man and valued nothing more than to spend time with his wife, children and grandchildren.
Leonard welcomed and embraced all who came into his life and was referred to by many as "dad". Leonard lead a very active life traveling the country with his beloved wife Gloria, enjoying all that life had to offer. He was one of the most positive and inspiring men that anyone would be lucky to come in contact with. He has touched many lives with his kindness and generosity and his light and love will live on within us until the end of time.
We will greatly miss our Dad and Papa for who he was and for all he did for us all. We love you and mom always.
