Leon AichlmayrLeon Aichlmayr, 77, went to heaven to be with the Lord on September 6th, 2021 surrounded by his family.

Leon is survived by his wife, Jenny; his brother, Glenn; his sister, Genevieve; his children, Justin, Archie, Tina, and Brigitte; and his grandchildren, Justine, Josie, Kyle, Tyler, Kristopher, Karly, and Kacie.

Leon was born on November 3rd, 1943 to Catherine Moeller and Joe Aichlmayr in Amarillo, TX. At 17 he moved to Colorado and began learning about dry walling which inevitably became his life-long career. He moved to Ridgecrest on April 1st, 1981 where he became a prominent member of the community. Most people may know him for his detailed ceiling work which he did at Holland & Lyons as well as many other businesses and residences within the community.

Leon was a “jack of all trades”. He loved working on his cars, taking his boat out on Lake Isabella, and was a fanatic for the Broncos and Lakers.

Leon was a proud Christian, and a devoted father.  He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

A service is scheduled for 11AM on September 25th at Holland & Lyons, with a reception being followed immediately after at Casey’s. The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to The American Lung Association.
