Tom Leach (photo above) of La Follette passed away Tuesday evening. 

Leach, who turned 94 on Christmas Day, was a vibrant, active and contributing member of the greater La Follette community for many, many years.

He and his wife Billie came up with the idea of forming the Campbell County Cancer Association more than 30-years ago.  Leach served on many committees and boards over the years including La Follette City Council and the La Follette Community Hospital Board of Directors.  He was a Shriner for more than 50 years.

More on the life of Tom Leach is forthcoming from WLAF.  Walters Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/12/2019-5:45PM)
