Harold E. Leiby, 72 of Vineland NJ, passed away Friday, May 15, 2020 in his home. He was born and raised in Millville, NJ and lived in Vineland, NJ for the past 46 years.
Harold enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard and served from 1965 to 1969. He was a Vietnam Combat Veteran, serving on board the USCGC Campbell. After his military service, he began working for Kimble Glass Co (Owens-Illinois/Gerresheimer) until he retired after 38 years of service.
Harold enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved to go golfing, fishing, hunting, kayaking and boating whenever he had the time. His favorite activity after his retirement was spending time out on the water and in later years was happy just sitting by the bay while sipping his Dunkin Donuts coffee.
Harold is survived by his wife, Gloria of 49 years; his daughters, Michele and Rachael, as well as his sister, Frances and his brother, Martin.
Harold was a loving father, devoted husband, and great friend.
