In memory of
Glenn Edward Leahey
Glenn Edward Leahey died peacefully at home on 2/13/21 of natural causes. Beloved son, brother, uncle, and cousin, he was born 5/17/63 to Edward Leahey and Frieda (nee Boehmisch). Glenn attended Visitation Grammar School and graduated high school from the Allegro School in Claverack, N.Y. He went on to achieve a B.S. in Psychology and Political Philosophy from Fordham University with subsequent graduate work in special education at Hunter College NYC. He worked for AHRC New York for many years, first with handicapped adults, then later with pre-schoolers. Glenn was a true Bronxite; playing darts in the local pubs, rescuing street cats, participating in Bronx cultural events, such as concerts at Wave Hill, Gaelic Park, and Van Cortlandt Park. He was devoted to his Kingsbridge neighborhood and Visitation schoolmates (Class of '77) and was always planning get-togethers. He was a classical music aficionado, and a regular member and attendee at Carnegie Hall, befriending the ushers and often buying tickets for friends and family so they could also attend.
