Mr. Leach has I know him (grew up across the street from him) was an extrodinary man. Growing up I played with his and his wifes (Marliyn Leach) son Jeff so for a few years i was like a fixture in there home. I remember the pride he took in his home,white picket fences, and the neat two-story clubhouse/shed he built that was cool. He really had a ack for fixing things always somthing on his workbench. I know he was he was loved in his church, I tagged along when I was younger. I always felt weclomed. He's a great neighbor to have. I hold this man and his wife Marliyn dear to my heart always. He will be missed by myself & family. He walks with god now. I love you Marliyn. Love Kathy
