April 9, 1951 – December 6, 2016

John Leasher, 65, passed away peacefully at his home in Somerville, AL on Tuesday afternoon surrounded by his loving family. Mr. Leasher was preceded in death by his father, John C. Leasher, Sr.

Left to cherish his precious memory is his mother, Doris Kelly of Harmony, PA; loving wife, Susan Edmunds Leasher of Somerville; two daughters, Terri Jo Edge (Greg) and Nicole Rudolph (Tommy) both of Fayetteville, NC; one son, Jeremy Leasher (Kelly) of Owens Cross Roads; step son Patrick Bryan (Gina May) of Woodville, AL; step daughter, Nichole Pytlik (Paul) of Ft. Lee, VA; eight grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews; and numerous other relatives and friends.

John was born in Elwood City, PA and was a proud US Army Veteran of 27 years. He was also a member of the Disabled American Veterans and the American Legion Post 237 for the past 18 years. “Butch”, as a lot of his friends called him, was a fun-loving “hoot” that liked to go four wheeling and zip lining. John Leasher was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him!
