Please find hereafter a few testimonies remembering Father Leahy, not many but quite touching as they are from students of different religions (Muslim, Bouddhist, and Christian) and that is beautiful in its self.
Father TIMOTHY LEAHY passed away the 24/4/2008 in Ireland
Thank you Francois for passing on the information to us about Fr. Leahy. I was glad to hear that he was still alive up to this point and then sad to hear about his passing. I remember him with fondness. He was a good priest and caring. I served as his altar boy on many occassions.
Hello to all. It was truly sad news about father Leahy. May he rest in peace and watch over all his students.
Father Leahy was a kind man who took the time to listen to you. He was charming and funny. Now he is with God resting in peace and joy.
Our Father in heaven blessed us with Fr. Timoth Leahy, may our Father in Heaven grant him abode in heaven forever. I have kind memories of Fr. Leahy going around slapping the palm of his hand with a journal, saying “now boys, boys, boys!” He was an excellent teacher and administrator.
Thank you for informing us of his passing. He is in our prayers.

I’m so sorry to hear about Fr. Leahy’s passing…..wish we could have found him sooner! I remember him fondly ……I especially remember his smile – and his nixing the brief cheer leading phase we went through! ha! He was probably right….short-shorts and sleeveless shirts would have been too much for the boys….wow….that memory just surfaced and I have to smile! Thanks Fr. Leahy….may you rest in peace.

Dear Salesian Buddies,
Very sorry to hear about Father Leahy’s passing away.
He was a very nice man and extremely caring towards everyone.
In his passing away, I guess we have lost one big link to the Salesian Family.
His words “Now,Now Children….” when trying to control a group of unruly kids, are still ingrained in my memory even after three decades ! Speaks volumes for the man.
May his soul rest in peace.
Dear All: Deeply saddened to learn about Father Leahy’s death. He was a deeply caring and a gentle man of God. He was a soft spoken and loving individual. He will continue to inspire generations to come.We were so close to connecting with him through the Salesian group.What a tragic loss. May God continue to guide him and us.
