Memories Not Forgotten
Richard (Dick) Leddy
by Barbara Olivier
OUR DEAR FRIEND Richard passed away on May 6, 2000. We will miss him (IRC nickname scooter), his patience and all the happiness he brought to #genealogy-help chat!
He and Virginia (IRC nickname gini) were a great help and they were the first to ever be married on the chat channel, which was of great interest to all as so many were involved with lots of preprations that will never be forgotten!
His talents were much appreciated by all, especially his computer and HTML knowledge.
He also found a long lost daughter through the net that sent him dancing!
RICHARD WE WILL MISS YOU!
Our prayers go out to his lovely family!
Family of Richard:
Wife, Virginia Leddy
Step-Daughters, Deana, Dori and Tara
2 Grandchildren and 4 Step Grandchildren
SHORT BIO Of Richard (Dick) Leddy
Dick was born almost 70 years ago in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Harold and Estelle. He is was an
only child. He Lived in Jersey City, N.J. until 1963, then moved to
California, where he lived until 1992. He then lived in Las Vegas and Phoenix for a few
years, then moved to Mountain Home, Arkansas, in 1995.
Dick had a major stroke in Dec. 1998, which left him with only about 80% of his memory,
and partially blind. His wife, Virginia, would help him all the time. He spent about 8-10 hours
a day on the PC, working on his pages. He was NOT a professional researcher, but enjoyed
sharing what he did find.
Richard Leddy, webmaster of CIVIL WAR ROSTERS ARRANGED BY STATE, will be
solely missed by family and friends. We thank him for all the wonderful things he has
I would like to thank Barbara for all the work
and effort she has put forth in making this page in
memory of my husband. We met Barbara in a genealogy
chat line several years ago and have tried to keep in
touch as much as each of our lives would allow. She has
always been there for us, as so many people have.
Thank you, Barbara!
