Heaven has gained a wonderful man. Jud L. Leach, 77, passed from this life on September 12, after a 5 month battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sue; daughter, Aundrea; son-in-law Clint McPherson; granddaughters, Piper and Sydnee (the lights of his life). He is also survived by a loving extended family and sister, Beverly Higgins.
Jud knew what hard work was. He worked at his parent’s grocery store in Anadarko from a young age. He later worked at Wilson Foods for 28 years. Jud and Sue have owned The Arrangement for 33 years and Jud enjoyed delivering flowers to make people happy as well as working alongside his wife and daughter. Customers would ask for him to deliver so they could visit with him and listen to his stories.
Jud was a 4th Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus and served as Grand Knight. He was a selfless man, and will be remembered for his unmovable dedication to running the council blood drives. He will always be remembered as a kind man and the most loving Poppie.
Sue and Jud traveled to many fun places with their dear friends Bob and Ramona Ritchie while making many treasured memories.
Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church, Yukon, with interment following at the Yukon Cemetery.
