A tribute to Leo Teahen

April 11,1936 -March 6,2009

Born in Saint Mary, Ontario 73 years ago, Leo was a friendly business gunslinger and warrior who liked to help people and try new things .College educated; he made an impact as sales manager for Sperry Rand, and later in the insurance and venture capital business. As a advisor to Premier Bill Davis, he did addiction work. He was very active in the A.A., and worked closely with the police departments to assist the addicted.

He was always active in his community, assisting political parties, groups and the taxpayer coalition in their quest to achieve accountable- cost effective government, build new revenue, and help the local taxpayers. He was instrumental in bringing and getting the necessary approvals for the Charity Casino in Brantford through a volunteer citizen action group.

A Roman Catholic who enjoyed life, Leo will be truly missed by all the people he helped and befriended. This is particularly true for Irma, his love of 18 years..

Leo passed away peacefully in Brantford on March 6, 2009.

He is survived by Erma, his soul mate of 18 years and members of his family. He has 3 step brothers and a step sister, an aunt and nieces and nephews.
