Paul J. Leonard

August 12, 1957 ~ April 29, 2021 (age 63)


Paul J. Leonard, 63, of Hummelstown, passed into the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ Thursday, April 29, 2021, in his home, with his loving wife and daughters by his side.


Born August 12, 1957 in Pittsburgh, he was a son of the late James B. and Jean (Biery) Leonard. 


Paul was a faithful man of God who exhibited his faith by his talk and walk.  He was a devoted and loving husband and father and will be missed dearly.  He was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and enjoyed eating ice cream, playing golf, riding bike and going to the beach.  He retired in January 2021 from The Hershey Company after 39 years of service and was a member of GracePoint Evangelical Free Church.  


Surviving are his wife of 39-1/2 years Pamela (Knause) Leonard; daughters Christina Leonard of Seattle, Washington and Sarah Leonard of Tirana, Albania; and siblings James Leonard (Barbara Smith), Tom Leonard (Julie Mohler), Jeannie Schiavo, Patrick Leonard (Tonya), and Mike Leonard (Diane).
