Not sure what to say?

Mr. Leahy was a wonderfully kind gentleman who I enjoyed driving to church every Sunday and driving him to and from medical appointments. He always told me beautiful stories of how proud he was of his family and how he always felt he could have done better. He was also very quick witted and had a wonderful sense of humor. We enjoyed many wonderful talks and laughs together. The world lost a very special man. My sincere condolences to his loved ones.

John and I got connected in Orbanco in 1971, and we worked closely until it was dissolved in 1985. He taught me much about the mortgage banking business, but most importantly, he taught me about his principles, his values, and his ethics. He is a man I will always remember, and can only hope to be as respected at the end as Joh is. My best to all of the children, especially Mollie (Peter ) who I remember with get feelings. Your Mom was equally as special as a person as your father.

John was one of the best boss a person could have. I started working for him back in 1981ish, he was also a great friend of my father. He is now with Maryanne and He will be missed... what a great man.

I worked with John many years ago. He was a great guy and a principled and dedicated professional. I wish there were more like John.
