Leo Easterling


Leo Easterling passed away on August 5, 2010, at the age of 85. He was born at home in Kearny, Nebraska on August 15, 1924, the second of three sons to Charles ‘Jack’ and Bessie Easterling.  The family moved to Cottage Grove, Oregon, when Leo was a freshman in high school. 

After graduation, he enlisted in the Navy and served during World War II as a radio operator on the USS Atherton.  Returning home after his tour, Leo soon met the love of his life Dolores Meyer who he married in 1948.  They moved to the Seattle area in 1955, settling in Bellevue in 1959, where they owned a successful real estate business for many years.  Leo was a well known and active member of the community. 

Leo’s biggest passion in life was his wife and family.  He had a wonderful, gentle personality and was well known for his corny jokes.  He loved football, travelling, and get-togethers with family and friends.  Leo is preceded by his wife of 62 years Dolores Easterling.  He leaves behind 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
