Leonard Marvin Voss

Mr. Leonard Marvin Voss, of North Zulch, TX, passed away on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at the age of 49.

Leonard was born on September 10, 1967 in Galveston, TX. He was adopted by his loving parents Leonard and Virginia Voss at 3 days of age. He grew up as the youngest of three and attended Kennedy High School. In 1993, he graduated from Sowela Technical Community College on the Dean’s list with an Associate’s Degree as an Industrial Electrician. In 2000, he ventured out and started his own company, Whitetail Electric. Leonard was well known and respected in his field.

Leonard married Patricia Harris in 1993, and the couple raised their children in Central Texas.

Leonard is survived by his wife, Patricia Voss; his son, Aaron Voss; his son, Matthew Voss; his daughter-in-law, Shamarah Voss; his daughter, Ashley Voss; his sister, Vivian Condon; his mother-in-law, Ann Johnson; sister-in-law, Christine Beall; his nieces, Stacia Handy and Michelle Harless Hanberry; his nephews, Stephen & Chris Condon and Darren Harless;  his eight grandchildren, Kylie, Emma, Aazeryuan, Aadreaz, Santana, SeanTaylor, Lexie, and Camerin; and many other extended family members. He is preceded in death by his parents, Leonard & Virginia Voss; his step father, Conrad Gonzales; grandparents, Marvin and Lavolla Watkins; his sister, Jeannine Harless, his cousin, Aaron Harless; and his aunt, MaryAnn Bonner.

Leonard was a true “man of men”. He was a quit and gentle soul, yet had the strength and courage of a thousand men. He lived a life of service for others, because he believed in placing everyone’s needs before his own. Husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend; it did not matter what role he played in your life, he would ensure you were taken care of. A man of few words, but those he spoke were witty and true. He would raise one eyebrow, throw out one liner, and have everyone laughing. He was a proud Texan, and a true cowboy. He lived a simple life, and by simple rules. He worked hard, never complained, and looked forward to the simple joys of time with his family that he loved so dearly. Leonard was a talented man with many passions. One of those being his love for animals. He passed this love on to his children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

Though Leonard has moved onto painting rainbows in the sky, his wonderful spirit will live on through his legacy, his children and their children. We are, richer, stronger, and wiser because we got to share in his life.

Cremation services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers Bryan-College Station.
