Michael Elliott Leadlay
Michael's life was taken way too early in a tragic plane crash along with his Boston Terrier, Lucy, on October 18, 2013 at the age of 39. He was a graduate of Merritt Island High School, attended Florida State University, worked in the family antique business and attained his Real Estate License. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, and friend. He never met a stranger and would give the shirt off of his back to anyone in need. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and was able to rally people together to affect change in this world. His life as a realtor allowed him to showcase his personality, and lead many people in his role as a Team Leader with Keller Williams. He touched so many lives in this world, and had an impact on everyone he met. He will continue to touch our lives as a special guardian angel looking over us and his final real estate gained in value when he walked through Heaven's gates.
He is preceeded in death by his paternal grandparents and his maternal grandmother. He is survived by his mom and dad, Brenda and Elliott Leadlay of Merritt Island, his brother Gregory Musselwhite (sister-in-law Denise) of Oviedo, sister Candace Jones (brother-in-law Ron) of Merritt Island, nephews Tyler, Riley and Nicolas and niece Alaina.
