Leo G. Deiger

On Sunday, May 3, 2020, Leo Gerald Deiger passed away peacefully at the age of 79. In residence at the Hospice of Northwest Ohio, with his wife by his side, Leo greeted the Lord and ended his lengthy battle with vascular dementia.
Leo was born November 1, 1940 in Toledo, OH to Charles and Adele (Powers) Deiger. He graduated from Central High School and Xavier University, where he received a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Leo was proud of his long-term career as the president of Pro-Pak Industries, a family-owned corrugated container business in Maumee, OH, and a partner with I.B.C. Realty, a commercial real estate company.
Leo had a dry sense of humor, was quick-witted, and loved his faith and family above all. Leo's generosity was his most admirable trait, as he would give to anyone in need without hesitation.
