Our Story

Gary Vaughn Strehle, 68 passed away peacefully to be with the Lord July 8, 2020. Gary graduated from Marina High school in San Leandro in 1969. He was a graduate of San Jose State University with a Masters in Aviation Science. Even though aviation was his passion he gave up his dream and took the helm of Strehle's Body Shop when his father Bill had health issues that caused him to retire. The Strehle name was synonymous with Washington Manor Jr. League Baseball. Gary's father, Wild Bill Strehle was a beloved coach, sponsor and a legend. Gary and Sandy were married August 1986 and enjoyed traveling in their RV and riding their quads. Gary had built and purchased many airplanes which he flew with passion and always enjoyed taking friends and family up on a flight. Gary recently retired from the auto body paint shop that bore the Strehle name that was founded by his grandfather in 1925. Gary will be remembered as a wonderful man and well thought of by those who knew him. He was thoughtful, kind and always fair. Gary leaves behind his loving wife of almost 34 years, Sandra. His son Vaughn and wife Abigail, his son Brandon and grandson Max. He was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Flo Strehle.
