To the Leatherman Family: We are saddened to hear of your father's passing, but know that he is celebrating with your mother. They were both so kind to us when we arrived in Perrysburg in 1977 and we cherished the friendship that developed over the years. They will be missed by the community, the church, but especially by you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I was fresh out of law school when I was appointed as Prosecutor in the Perrysburg Municipal Court in 1970. I could not have been blessed with a better and more patient mentor than Judge Leatherman. He taught me respect for the law and for the Court and help me in more ways that I can say in this brief tribute. He will always hold my deepest respect and he will be missed. He was the perfect example of what a good, country lawyer should be to his clients and his community. My deepest sympathies to his family.

Wayne was a cherished member of St Luke's Cardiac Rehab for many years and has many friends there. He had such compassion and care for others and was always ready to listen and offer advice when needed. We will miss him greatly but say "well done, my good and faithful servant".

Our deepest sympathies to the family of Attorney Leatherman. During the brief time we had the chance to know him, we have all fallen in love with his gentle nature. He is a true gentleman, scholar and had the magical ability to make everyone feel special even when he was so ill. With Fondness and Sympathy, All of Us at Friends of the Family Home Health Care.

Dear family - our deepest sympathies on the loss of your father. He was a remarkable man - accomplished yet humble, intelligent yet always on a quest to learn. I know from stories my father shared that he was fun-loving and adventurous as well. I can just picture our dads and all their brothers, along with Aunt Faye, "holding court" in the heavenly Kingdom! May you find comfort in your memories. love, Barbara Leatherman Dixon and family

Kay,
Know that you are in thoughts and prayers with the loss of your father. My fondest memory is how your parents were there to help the Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps back in our day. I remember the time they made home made ice cream for the whole corps. May the Angels come to meet him and the Martyrs take him to the New and eternal Jerusalem.
God Bless.

I did not know Mr. Leatherman personally, but my dad and he went to the same University. Mr Leatherman became my parents attorney for many years. Presently, daughter,Kay,is my mothers attorney.

Dear Kay and Sue,

My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Your Dad was a very special man. You are in my prayers
April 28, 2013
While I did not know him as well as many others, the short time spent with him was enough to make it clear why he was special to so many people. Mr. Leatherman was like pages out of a text on United States history, except he could walk, talk, and was far more engaging. He had a spectacular memory, and was a truly gifted storyteller. Mr. Leatherman's life was symbolic of the American Dream. He grew up on a farm, and went on to serve his country, become an attorney, own his own law practice, become a municipal judge, and be a grandfather to some wonderful kids who thought of him as the best grandfather anyone could ever have. I will always remember his wonderfully inviting smile, and the smile he put on his family's faces when he opened his mouth to speak. I understand why everyone spoke so fondly of him, and I am truly sorry for the loss being bore by his family and friends. However, I know that his memory will be kept alive in perpetuity by those that have survived him, and that is a comforting feeling. God bless.

April 28, 2013
Kay, I am so sad to hear about your father's passing. The death of a parent is always so difficult no matter when it occurs but having available the memories makes it easier to handle. Treasure those memories. They will help sustain you. All my best to you and your family.

This was a man who epitomized all that's good about Wood country and our nation; he was bright, caring, the ultimate caring professional; he was Mr. Integrity both on and off the bench.
To the young man struggling to start a career in a straight commission business, he was a big brother, mentor, leader. most supportive when help was most needed. Back in the day, I was that lucky young man.
We're all better for Wayne Leatherman having passed our way;A man who lived his faith daily is altogether too rare.
To Kay, Sue and their families, our deepest sympathy;you can indeed be proud.
