February 5, 1932 - June 30, 2014

Leroy "Oz" Mullerleile, age 82 of Richfield.  Passed away on June 30, 2014.  Oz was a kind, gentle man who was devoted to his friends and his family.  He was all about people, developing relationships, ultimately converting them into friendships.  He was an ambassador for the city of Richfield and he was passionate for his community and an enthusiast for its youth and high school sports.  He was simply Oz to thousands of kids who considered him their loyal follower and he blessed them with his support and encouragement.  They brought joy to his heart and in return he loved them all.

Oz will be greatly missed, but his exuberant spirit will endure and perpetuate in all those he touched forever!  Preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Marie Muellerleile.  Survived by his wife, Ann; children and their spouses, Mary (Gary) Piram, Tom (Jill) Mullerleile, Mark Mullerleile, and Jennie Mullerleile; grandchildren, Luke (Angela), Sari, Matthew, Michael, Kadie, Jack, Jaden, Harrison and Brandon; great-grandchildren, Leo, Gianna, Katharine and Kruz; brother, Leon Mullerleile; sisters, Carol Vogelsberg and Janette (Arlan) Malling; as well as many other relatives and friends.

    Tom and family, I very sorry for your loss. Your father was a fixture at all of our sporting events growing up. I will always remeber his encouraging words before and after games. I had the pleasure of running into him at a basketball game I was officiating and he still had the same warm smile and encouraging words. He was a role model for how parents should support and encourage youth sports! My condolences.

    My deepest sympathy on the passing of Oz. I did not know him well but I always enjoyed talking to him when I saw him at DOR and lately and DOR Old Tymer’s Luncheons held at TInnucci’s in Newport. It was not that long ago that I saw him at one and we had a nice visit with each other. I remember as always being outgoing and friendly and he had a great sense of humor.
