So sorry about your loss and so sorry for my loss as I meant to come and see each other before this day ever happened Dan Martellacci one of good friends from Vietnam
Played FB with Chuck during our career at Egan and saw him last in 1967 or '68 on a jungle landing strip in South Vietnam, somewhere in III Corps. Chuck's Air assault Company and my 'Guns' Company came together to plan operation against the bad guys. Had a 'nice' chat about 'Egan' Boys meeting in a place like this! As I recall, we completed the ops with little fanfare and I never saw Chuck again. Joe McCann said he was and 'funny' guy and I can certainly attest to that. Herb Ruthrauff Egan'62; La Mirada, CA.
Chuck will always live in our memories and in our hearts. I am saddened by the loss of such a good, handsome, funny and gifted man. He will always be remembered as a big brother to me and for his kindness during our years at BE. Mary Ann's little sister
Fond memories of Coach at Egan. Funny - yes, business - yes, inspiring - yes. Death is the end of a life NOT a relationship. Chuck will always be with us in spirit. Blessings to the Chuck Leahan family.
Great Teacher, Football Coach, and Leader. Sorry for your loss.
Excellent teacher. It was an honor and priviledge to have met him and be taken under his wing.
To Maura, Family and Friends of Chuck,
So sorry to hear about your loss, my thoughts are with you and your family at this time.
Chuck and I went to grade school, high school and, for one year, college together. As close friends, we shared many, many laughs together. I have shared some of the zany outrageous things we did growing up with my grandkids. They laughed...and, so did I, again. Chuck will be missed...by many. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the Leahan family.
Senor Leahan, You were one of the best teachers I ever had. You and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers---
Mrs Lehan, Maura, and caitrin - Marc and I are terribly sorry for your loss. He was a great man, father,husband and coach. He will be missed by so many, not that many people can touch so many lives in a positive way like he did. Our deepest condolences to all of you!!blove Danielle Kelly & Marc March
Coach Chuck was a great teacher of the game of football and of life. He was my coach at Monsignor Bonner, he taught my cousins (The Ruskys) Spanish at Archbishop Kennedy and he coach my nephews (The Berrodins) at Bishop Shanahan. He touched our lives in many ways in those formative years. We are all better people for knowing him. He was a lovable "tough" guy that none of us will ever forget. God Bless You Chuck.
"To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me "
When I am gone, release me. Let me go I have so any things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy, we had so many years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown but now it's time I traveled alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a while that we must part. So bless those memories in your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on so if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near with all my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome You Home".
Dearest Cindy & Family, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. Chuck was a great man & neighbor. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Leahan was one of my favorite teachers, I loved how he had nicknames for everyone in our Spanish class. One year he gave me a tape of the song my nickname was after, which I still have to this day. He will be greatly missed.
Greatest Teacher I have ever had. He taught me much more than just Spanish, he taught me life. He taught me more about respect and hard-work and for that, I hold him very highly and give much respect to him. R.I.P Mr. Leahan you will never be forgotten your students will always pass on your memory
I was not one of his students but knew from classmates he was much loved and admired. He left an impression on everyone he knew. He changed many lives for the better. RIP Maureen McTamney AKHS '76

Very sad to hear of Mr. Leahan. Many great memories at AKHS. A good man has left us too soon.
Mr Leahan you were my Spanish teacher at Archbishop Kennedy and I remember you sharing your honeymoon pictures of a bull fight in Spain, I enjoyed you as a teacher. RIP

Class of 85'....I hope he is still playing odds & evens. A true teacher, coach & friend!
Cindy and girls, I was so sorry to hear of Chucks passing. We have very fond memories of you family and I can still hear him telling the girls there are ducks on the pond at softball. I never met a man who was as fair or compassionate to all who's lives he touched. He will be greatly missed by all
I will miss you forever and keep you close to my heart. We will play golf again together and chat about our day's at Kennedy.R.I.P my brother.AKHS 77'
He was a good teacher one of the best.
I am so sorry for the loss of Mr. Leahan. He was not only my Spanish teacher, but my softball coach as well. He was such a positive influence in my life in high school and still today, 24 years later. He was a good man, teacher, and inspiration to everyone who had him to do better in everything we did. My heart goes out to his wife and family during this difficult time. Rest Easy Senor...

goodbye chuck,you were a great guy
I was just talking to my daughters last night about Mr. Leahan! He was a great Spanish teacher and so much fun. We all loved him at Archbishop Kennedy! I know his family will miss him.
Karen Bucolo, class of '83
It was my honor and privilege to know such a great man and brother-in-arms. Sincerest condolences to Chuck's family.
Thoughts and prayers with you and your family at this difficult time.
Mr. Leahan was an incredible pillar in my early years of high school. I played football my freshman year for him. He taught me so much. He was tough, yet lead with that guiding hand. I will miss knowing he walks among us. His cigar, giant stick that keep me on task in class and his ability to talk to me as a young man. I had and always will have a true meaning of the word respect for this man. God take u Mr. Leahan. I will carry ur memory with me always.
Señor Leahan was my favorite teacher at Shanahan. He always made learning such a great adventure. My prayers are with his family.
Sympathy, thoughts and prayers .
Jeanie Wert BE 1962
The life lessons that Mr. Leahan and the other great teachers and coaches at Kennedy were invaluable. His leadership, sense of humor, sensitivity and sensibility helped countless young people more than he will ever know. Forty-three years teaching high school and inspiring anyone who would listen (and whacking anyone who wasn't listening), is one heck of a resume to present. We'll all miss him but the memories and stories live on. My prayers are with him and his family.
John Conboy, AKHS 1980
My deepest sympathy to the family. He was my favorite teacher. 5 years of spanish with mr leahan. Henrietta Sonet Nase '77 Archbishop Kennedy
