John Y. Leacott

(Oct 24, 1928 to May 6, 2011)

John knew that the little things, the little moments, they aren’t little at all. He kept his life simple; just about the only time he’d raise his voice was when watching sports. And while he would watch just about any sport there was, he didn’t develop a taste for soccer until he had children. By the time they were in college he would travel anywhere to see them play. Having learned finance while serving the Army, John went on to a career in banking, eventually retiring from Roebling Bank in Florence. rn John is survived by his wife Joan (nee Elbertson) of Delran, his sons: John Michael (Barbara) of Lumberton, Michael Joseph (Jennifer Moon) of Colorado and Scott Young (Michele) of Glassboro, as well as his grandchildren: Brooke, Tyler, Ethan and Kori and his brother Donald H. (Maria) of North Carolina.rn Come celebrate John’s 82 wonderful years (Oct. 24, 1928-May 6, 2011) Wednesday from 9-11 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside. Interment private. rn

    Aunt Joan, John/Barb, Mike/Jennifer, Scott/Michele, Brooke, Tyler, Ethan and Kori…so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Jack. I will never forget the summers in Delran, where he basically had two daughters all summer long because Lori and I refused to leave. He was a kind and caring man and will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this time. Always know we are here if you need us.nLove, Dena, Bill, Will, and Niki

    My heartfelt condolences to Jack’s family. I knew him from the bank where he was my mom, Debbie’s boss. He was such a wonderful spirit and we always had a good time joking with him. He will surely be missed.
