William Jeffrey Leanderts
To send flowers in memory of William Jeffrey Leanderts, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
September 12, 1976 – February 10, 2019
Beloved by his parents Mary Ellen (nee Grube) and Jeffrey B Leanderts, sister Mary Catherine (Jose) Merchan and their daughter Maeve Ellen, brother Paul (Michelle) Churchill and their children, Catherine, Paul, Daniel and Michael.
Bill will forever be a treasured son, brother, uncle and friend – leaving us all more patient, kind and enlightened for having been touched by his life. He was a relentless defender of everything he felt was right. A firm believer in labor unions and activism, Bill literally devoted his life to being an advocate for those whom others might otherwise pass over. He loved politics (only the good guys), his family, children, all things yellow and explaining everything to anyone who cared to listen. Bill passed away suddenly after a short illness and chose the gift of organ donation. His soft heart shall never be matched. He was a true treasure who walked this earth among us.
In his honor, please spread an act of kindness and plant some yellow flowers… so that through us he may continue his work of making this world a more tolerant, beautiful place.
A Celebration of Life ceremony is planned for a future date.
FAMILY REQUESTS NO FLOWERS PLEASE.
