Robert Edward Leahy, aged 76, passed away peacefully on the last day of the year, December 31, 2023. Born on July 29, 1947, in Michigan, Robert was a beacon of kindness and warmth to all who knew him.

Robert's early years in Michigan laid the foundation for a life marked by dedication and service. His pursuit of knowledge led him to achieve a Bachelor's degree in computer programming, a testament to his love for technology and innovation. His intellectual curiosity was matched by a hands-on approach to life, which was evident in his skilled work as an aircraft mechanic.

His professional journey was diverse and impactful. Robert proudly served his country as an Air Force airplane mechanic, a role that not only showcased his technical prowess but also his unwavering commitment to national service. His excellence in this capacity was recognized with the National Defense Service Medal, an honor that speaks volumes about his dedication and patriotism.

Following his military service, Robert transitioned to civilian life with grace and expertise, taking on the role of a computer analyst. In this capacity, he continued to demonstrate his problem-solving abilities and his innate understanding of complex systems. His colleagues often spoke of his friendly demeanor and thoughtful approach to collaboration, qualities that made him not just a valuable team member but a cherished friend.

Above all, Robert was a family man. He is survived by his son, Robert Leahy, Jr., who inherits not only his father's name but his generous spirit. The bond they shared was built on mutual respect and a deep understanding that transcended words.

Those who had the privilege of knowing Robert will remember him as the epitome of kindness. He navigated life's challenges with a gentle smile and an open heart, always ready to extend a helping hand. His friendly conversations were filled with wisdom and empathy, leaving a lasting impression on those fortunate enough to cross his path.
