Don E. Leach was born in Galveston, TX in 1964 to Carolyn and Don Leach Jr. He graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1983 where he played many sports including football and baseball. He worked in several industries before finding his calling in the roofing and construction industry, where he ran a family business for several decades.
Don grew up hunting and fishing. It was a deep passion that he shared with his dearest friends and family throughout his life. Golf was also another pleasure of his, traveling the country with his buddies, and winning numerous big money tournaments. Horse racing became another love later in life that he shared with his family. Their farm in Midlothian, along with all the animals, quickly became his piece of heaven on earth.
On June 26, 1993 Don tied the knot with his wife, Liesa. They shared 31 years together, raising their children, taking beautiful vacations, going to loads of sporting events, opening new businesses, including a restaurant bar which brought lots of new friendships and lifelong memories. He spent every Sunday indulging loved ones with homecooked meals and quality family time, while also sweating out his football bets with Junior. He loved spending as much time as he possibly could with his children as his universe revolved around them.
Throughout his life, Big Don served with his big heart. He was the rock for many. He knew no stranger, and was always eager to help anyone - no matter the circumstance. He gave freely with no expectations in return or strings ever attached. His soul was generous, and he left no stone unturned as he completed his contract with God.
He is preceded in death by his father Don E. Leach Jr. and his grandparents Don E. Leach Sr., and Johnnie Ramsey, May Belle and Jasper Allen Unger.
Don is survived by his wife, Liesa. His sons Don E. Leach IV & Taylor Woolley and daughter Hailey Leach Allen & Son-In-Law James Doss Allen V, mother Carolyn Unger, sister Donna & Dwayne Janczak, sister Dana & Cliff Parker, many nieces and nephews and his beloved dog, Penny.
