September 9, 1934 – September 9, 2012 – It is with great sadness, that the family of Ted Leahy announces his passing at home on the morning of his 78th birthday. Loving husband and friend of Pat. Proud father of Catherine, Tim and Brian (Malini). He had fun sharing his love of cookies with his much loved grandson Eóin and enjoyed sharing his passion of rocks with his beloved granddaughter Asha. He is the son of the late Dr. W. Leahy and Helen (Carufel). Brother of Bill (late Amy), late Harry (Barbara Smith, late Genevieve), late Jack (Lee), late Paul (Joan Ann), late Lenna Lamont (late John), Anne Taylor (Norman), Sister Jean Leahy S.J. Brother-in-law of Colleen Greco (late Jerry), late Tom Mahoney (late Donna, late Doris), Kevin Mahoney (Judy) and Karen Grady. Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. Ted was kind and caring to his family, friends, neighbours, coworkers and clients at the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. Ted’s love of geology and history resulted in the development of the Simpson Shaft project in Bruce Mines. The “Kindest Man in Algoma” enjoyed his retirement years researching and writing the history of copper mining in the Bruce Mines area, successfully completing the final chapter of his book just prior to his birthday. Friends may call at the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Friday, September 14, 2012 from 1-3 pm. At Ted’s request there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorial contributions to the Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH) or the charity of your choice. A special thank you to Dr. F. Ianni, Kay Reid (N.P.), Dr. S. Fratesi for their care and to Dr. A. Wakegijig for her compassion. Expressions of sympathy may be offered at www.arthurfuneralhome.com.
