In Memory Of:

Leland Machler
Marine Corps

Leland Machler was a proud Marine and Vietnam veteran. He proudly and honorably served this country. Lee was a humble man who loved his family greatly. He loved building things and even built a beautiful home with his own hands for his family. He grew up loving the beach and was a “California guy” – surfing was a hobby. He loved working with his hands, building furniture, and working on cars. He was an amazing man, loving father and great husband. His family loved him dearly and continue to carry his passionate spirit!
