Patrick A. Leahy

Heaven gained an angel on July 11, 2014, when Patrick Ames Leahy of Buffalo City, WI ascended to his eternal home. He was born to Audrey (Ames) and Ralph Leahy July 18, 1939 in Minocqua, WI. He was an exceptional athlete at Cochrane High School where he graduated in 1958. One of his accomplishments was pitching 12 no-hitters and one perfect game. He was enlisted in the Naval Reserve for three years while in high school and went on to proudly serve his country as a jet mechanic in the U.S. Navy from 1959-1961. On September 8, 1962 he married the love of his life, Ruth Duellman, and they shared 52 blessed years. Together they raised three loving daughters, Jennifer (Joe) Slaby, Rachelle Stetson, and Colleen Leahy. In addition to his wife and daughters, he is survived by six grandchildren, Torey and Carley Hilt, Megan and Alex Stetson, and Zoey and Maddey Slaby, whom he adored more than anything in the world, his brothers Michael (Judy) Leahy, Kevin (Jemay) Leahy, his sister Mary (Dave) Seifert, and his sister-in-law Georgia Leahy. He is also survived by his brothers and sisters- in law Tom (Audrey) Duellman, Louis (Nancy) Duellman, Jane (Jay) Fish, Bill Schuth, Elmer (Bernadette) Duellman, and Robert (Carol) Duellman, along with many beloved nieces, nephews, and friends. Pat was preceded in death by his parents and in-laws Hilarion Duellman, Anna , Eleanor and Ella Duellman, his brother Timothy, sister and brother-in-law Helen (Eugene) Gabrick, sister-in-law Ethel Schuth, niece Sandra (Duellman) Guyette, and nephew William Schuth. Pat was a loyal employee at Buffalo Electric where he was a lineman and served in many other capacities for 31 years. Pat was a very strong, compassionate, generous and talented man. No repair was impossible or daunting in his eyes! Family was everything to him and he meant everything to them. He will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know him.
