Patrick Michael Leach, 64, of Waukegan, IL departed this world at home on January 21, 2022, with his loving family by his side after a courageous battle with cancer. He has now started a new voyage. Pat was born March 16, 1957 in Waukegan, IL and formerly employed by Tru Green of Lake Bluff and Domino Amjet of Gurnee.
Pat was an avid Chicago sports fan to the Bears, Cubs, Bulls, and Blackhawks. He enjoyed watching NASCAR on the weekends and fishing, where the "Fish grew as they came out of the water." The most important thing in this world to him was his family. From family gatherings to family vacations, being with them brought him so much joy. Pat had that gift of gab, always smiling, giving a handshake or a hug.
Pat will be greatly missed by his adoring wife, Pamela; loving daughters, Michelle Leach, Nicole (Jeff) Holland both of Waukegan, Tiffany (Raul) Larsen of Winthrop Harbor; son Timmy (Heather) Larsen of Zion; adorable grandchildren, Wyatt Holland Vicente Marban, Christian Marban, Starlett Sims; brothers, James Leach of Willis, TC, Paul (Ann) Leach of Walton, IN, John (Linda) Leach of Zion, IL, Jimmy (Jane) Downes of Valparaiso, IN; sisters, Rosie (Ken) Gotsch of Arkdale, WI, Donna Pannone of Beach Park, IL, Stacey (Mike) Olson of South Milwaukee, WI; adoring nieces and nephews, Patricia Decker of Bristol, WI, Kora Leach of The woodlands, TX, Jennifer (Barry) Johnson of Katy, TX, Katie (Marcus) Hedrick of Flora, IN, Frank (Lydia) Leach of Flora, IN, Steven Leach of Willis, TX, Frank Decker of Winthrop Harbor, IL; many great nieces and nephews; long time friend John Fenner of Ottumwa, IA.
