It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our devoted husband and loving father, Darcy Mitchell Leicht on December 26, 2007 at the age of 44 years.
Darcy grew up on a farm in central Alberta. He moved to Calgary in the late ’80’s, where he met and married Debbie. Together they established a business as owner/operator/bakers with Gramma Lee’s Bakery in Midnapore Mall. Upon the closure of the bakery, Darcy started work with ATS Transportation where he was employed until his passing. During the years of raising their children, Darcy enjoyed coaching and participating with Jacob in the Midnapore Hockey Association and coaching softball with his daughter Kamilah in the Cal-South Softball league. He enjoyed the many weekends camping at McLean Creek with family and friends, along with the occasional softball and golf game. Darcy also had a great love of the Calgary Flames.
Darcy is survived by his adored wife of nineteen years Debbie and two beautiful children Jacob and Kamilah. He will be remembered by his Gramma Tolley Kromm; brothers Rick (Pat) and Bill; sister Leeanne (Niel); mother-in-law Sophie Clark and numerous relatives and friends. Darcy was predeceased by his parents Marie and Ted Leicht.
Graveside Service will be held at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens, Lower Springbank Road and 17th Avenue S.W., Calgary on Friday, February 1, 2008 at 1:30 P.M. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
