Obituary

Gerald Lloyd “Jerry” Leach died unexpectedly on August 13 at his camp on Spec Pond, doing what he loved, in a place he loved, with a treasured friend at his side.
Born during a snowstorm to Lloyd and Lois Leach on December 7, 1957, Jerry lived his whole life on Verona Island and Bucksport. When asked why he didn’t care to travel he simply answered “I love Maine.” He was a proud “old school” papermaker and worked for 36 years at the Bucksport mill. After retiring, he taught himself to weld and built a machine shop in his garage. Jerry was an avid collector of tools, a skilled carpenter; and if he couldn’t fix something, he figured out how. He was smart, witty, curious and always ready to help others.

Jerry will be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and cousin. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 30 years, Allison; his children: Kasie Laviolette (and husband Joe); Jessica VanScoy (and husband Derek); Nicholas Leach; Katie VanScoy, and Kel Leach (with partner Kelsey); his siblings, brother Larry (and wife Jill), brother-in-law Smokey (and wife Clara), and sister-in-law Robyn (and husband Mike). He also leaves his beloved grandchildren: Rylee, Noah, Chloe, Ada, Jade, and Aiden, as well as nieces, nephews and many dear friends. He will be sadly missed by his much loved beagles Jack and Molly, and his grand dog Henrietta. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, August 18th with a visitation from 1-2pm followed by a service at 2pm at Mitchell Tweedie Funeral Home 28 Elm St Bucksport. Friends are welcome to come and share their memories of a wonderful man who left us too soon. Reception to follow at KOA Fort Knox campground.
In lieu of flowers the family would like donations made to Tall Tails Beagle Rescue on the website (http://www.talltailsbeaglerescue.org).

Allison,
I was so terribly sad to read the news of your beloved best friend. You were wonderful in sharing your stories and love of him when we worked together. The notice in the BDN was very special. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
