Gilbert Lowry Leyendecker, Sr., 93, was welcomed into our Lord’s heavenly kingdom on Thursday, June 09, 2022.
Gilbert proudly served our country in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. Truly an outdoorsman, he had a passion for Laredo’s bush country and wildlife; he had a particular fondness of deer. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time on his beloved ranch. He will be greatly missed.
He was preceded in passing by his beloved wife, June Leyendecker; parents, Peter P. and Emily Jordan Leyendecker; granddaughter, Krysta Dahlia Walker; brothers, Peter P. III, Samuel, Richard, Albert, and Frank Leyendecker; and sister, Emily Ann Knowles.
Left to cherish his memory are: his children, Dr. Sandra Anne Leyendecker, Jessica Leyendecker Walker, and Gilbert L. (Denise) Leyendecker, Jr.; grandchildren, James Patrick (Janet) Walker, Jr., Amanda (Dustin) Walker Hayes, Jordan Leyendecker, and Lauren Leyendecker; as well as by great-grandchildren, Christopher Travis Walker, Mira Krysta Rias Hayes, Jaina Lena Dalia Hayes, and Nova Mercy Marie Hayes. He is further survived by his caregiver and family friend, Rosa Reynoso; as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, extended relatives, and friends.
Private Funeral Services were held.
