On July 6th, 2022 Reverend Peter J. Leddy Sr of 1208 Lakecrest Drive, Apopka, Florida passed following a brief illness after a fall requiring surgery. He was also a veteran.
Pete Leddy was a man of many interests and talents, but as we reflect on his life, the thing we always come back to is love.
Pete loved his family. He was married to Carol (Smeltzer) for 58 years. Father of four, Mary Franks, Ruth (Mike) Conner, Joe (Kelly) Leddy, Harvey (Amanda) Leddy. Grandfather of eight, Michelle, James, Kayleigh, Collin, Rebecca, Rachel, Jax, Stephen. Great Grandfather of five, Maddie, Jackson, Sawyer, Aria, and Madden. There was a tenderness that endured between Pete and Carol, “In good times and in bad,for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health” were vows made and vows kept. Pete supported all of his children despite their occasional poor decision making. He let his children try, even if it meant that they would fail. He believed in conversation, not argument, His love extended to his collection of “out-laws”, the spouses of his children. His grandchildren were a source of great pride, he developed unique relationships with each that were as unique as the children themselves. To his family Peter was a guiding hand as his children were allowed to find their own paths, sometimes with a nudge, sometimes with a shove, but always with love. Husband, Father, Counselor, Champion, Disciple of Faith, Teacher, Mentor, & Friend. He will be missed.
