Leo G. Deiger

11/1/1940 - 05/03/2020

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.

He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Debbie (Barr) Deiger, Perrysburg, OH; daughter, Sherrie Deiger, Holland, OH; son, Randy Deiger, Toledo, OH; step-daughter, Alexis Peregoy (Benjamin), Tucson, AZ; stepson, Mark James, Toledo, OH; grandchildren, David, Samantha, Valerie, Joshua, Devin, Mara (Chris), Mark, Luke, Eli, and Michael; 2 great-grandchildren, Caspian and Fox; siblings, Charlene Aiken, Anthony (Gay), and Charles (Sue); and several nieces and nephews.

Along with his parents, Leo was preceded in death by his brother, Lawrence (Bridget); infant daughter, Brenda; and first wife, Margaret.

Randy and Sherrie my heart goes out to you your dad was an exceptional man he was kind loving generous giving and always there to listen. He made you feel like you were important. I remember the first day I applied for a job he said he was going to try me out for a few days and here I am 37 years later still there. Because of him I was able to live my life smarter because he showed me how to be responsible and I loved him for that. He will truly be missed but never forgotten. GOD BLESS YOU RANDY AND SHERRIE AND MAY HE EMBRACE YOU IN HIS LOVING ARMS. LOVE, TONI VILLOLOVOS

Leo was a great person and definitely a leader. He worked hard along with his brothers to carry on the success of a company that I truly was happy to be associated with for several years. R. I.P chief.......Larry Keil

I have the best memories of shooting hoops with Uncle Leo when I was a kid. He had a way about him that always made me feel special. His sense of humor was always unexpected, but usually necessary to break the ice. My sincerest condolences to my cousins and their children. Rest in Peace Uncle Leo
