Leroy Mosler

A remarkable person, loving husband and father, Leroy Mosler died Nov. 13, 2013, at Sutter Roseville Medical Center following a cardiac arrest.

Leroy was born April 13, 1928, to Wayne and Edna Mosler-Fowler. He grew up in Long Beach.

While working as a draftsman, he earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, after which he worked for the City of Los Angeles Department of Water Power (DWP) for 27 years and became a member of the Engineers & Architects Association.

After retiring, he returned to DWP as a consultant, lending his corrosion engineering expertise to the construction of the L.A. light rail system. In 1994, he moved to Grass Valley (where his parents had retired 30 years earlier) with his wife, where he continued to pursue his passions for photography, astronomy, tomato growing and bread making.

He is survived by his wife, Virginia of Grass Valley; sons Steve and Jim; daughters Robin, Laura and Layne; and grandchildren Chase, Travis, Lindsay, Jamie, Jared, Derek and Vanessa.

Per Leroy’s wishes, no memorial service is planned.

Arrangements are under the care of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary in Grass Valley.
