BROWNVILLE JCT. - David R. Leathers, 44, died unexpectedly Aug. 13, 2005. He was born in Fort Kent, Dec. 27, 1960, the son of John and Eleanor (Drummond) Leathers of Brownville Junction. David graduated from Penquis Valley High School in Milo, in 1979. He was employed by Eastern Maine Railway, working in several capacities over the years. He had worked as a railway trackman, carman, bridge and building foreman and railway train conductor. David was a busy man, a hard worker that always had several "irons in the fire". He enjoyed life immensely and was known by family, friends and co-workers for his loud and hearty laugh. He loved the outdoors, boating, hunting, fishing and especially snowmobiling with his brother-in-law, Bob. He leaves his parents, John and Ellie Leathers of Brownville Junction; sister and brother-in-law, Kathy and Bob Hogan of Sebec; his brother, John Leathers of Newburgh; his brother and sister-in-law, Rick and Gail Leathers of Medford. He was a much loved "Uncle Davey" to nephews, Justin Hogan of Portland, John Hogan of Sebec, Tucker Leathers of Medford, John O. Leathers II of Newburgh; and niece, Sara Kate Leathers of Newburgh; also many aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends. He will be especially missed by his very special friend, Michelle Herbest of Sangerville and his good friend and best buddy, Doug Willinski of Brownville Junction. Abiding by David's wishes, there will be no funeral. His family feels that he would encourage friends to attend the upcoming Eagles Tribute Band concert being held at the Big Pine Amphitheater at the "Junction Store", 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, 2005, hosted by his good friends, the Belvin family. A memorial service is planned for a later date. If desired, contributions may be made in David's memory to the Heartwise Cardiac Rehab Program of Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft; the PCC Club of the Piscataquis Regional YMCA; or the charity of one's choice.
