John “Kelly” Leffingwell – Brookville

first_imgJohn “Kelly” Leffingwell died April 22, 2020 at home surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with kidney cancer. Kelly was born July 22, 1960 to Bill Dick and Butzie Leffingwell in Connersville, Indiana. He is survived by wife, Missy, son, Evan, daughter-in-law, Katie, and daughter, Logan.Born an entrepreneur, Kelly had been coined “The Candy Man” at his elementary school as he would sell candy to his school friends. This skillset followed him later in life when he bought Pizza Pete at the age of 20. His hard work and determination made this a successfully ran business for more than 35 years. A legacy he’d be proud that his son and wife continue to this day. Kelly was equally proud of his daughter Logan who earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and took the driver’s seat throughout his cancer journey.Though Kelly will be sorely missed by his family and friends, they will celebrate his beautiful life and all of his achievements. One of those achievements included obtaining his Eagle Scout rank at 15 years old. His project was to clean Whitewater Canal. Additionally Kelly was an avid canoer, who enjoyed wood working, golfing, hunting, trapping, and fishing. Any opportunity to be outside, Kelly took advantage of. If he could be outside doing the above with family and friends, all the better.Kelly’s true passion in life was loving and caring for his family and friends. His selflessness shined through in his everyday life. A true good samaritan, Kelly touched so many by volunteering himself in any capacity.In his final days Kelly would talk candidly to his family and friends about going to paradise and leaving the rest of us behind. They know he is in heaven and find comfort that his light will be shining upon them until they meet again.A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.  Everyone is encouraged to sign the online guestbook or share personal memories at  Memorial donations can be directed to the St. Michael building fund at 145 St. Michael Blvd. Brookville, IN 47012.  The staff of Cook Rosenberger Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Kelly Leffingwell.last_img read more

Patterson meets officials to remedy delayed road works in NA

first_imgIn light of complaints of unnecessary downtime received from residents of New Amsterdam, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson led a team to the town on Wednesday to review ongoing road works being executed there.Accompanying the Minister were Permanent Secretary, Kenneth Jordan; and Coordinator/Chief Works Officer of the Work Services Group, Geoffrey Vaughn.After arriving in the Ancient County early Wednesday morning, Minister PattersonStalled works on one of the roads in New Amsterdamturned up to inspect the progress of works being undertaken by his Ministry on Main and Republic Streets in New Amsterdam. The visit came on the heels of reports to the Ministry of slothfulness in the execution of the project, which has caused inconveniences to the residents of the community.During the visit, Minister Patterson met with a number of officials including the Ministry’s Regional Engineer for Region Six; the contractor, Associated Contractor Company; and a representative from the Community Oversight Committee to ascertain the reasons behind the delay and determine the way forward.Following discussions, a number of solutions were determined, including the reopening of one lane of the road to vehicular traffic to reduce the level of inconvenience experienced by the residents. Nonetheless, it was emphasised that all necessary steps, such as the testing of materials, must be taken to ensure that the work will stand the test of time, despite the delays these steps may cause.“We don’t want to do something that’s just fast; we want to do something that is correct,” Minister Patterson stressed. He also emphasised that any internal conflicts must be put aside since the residents were ultimately the ones being affected.The works, which include scarification, asphalting, and deep patching of failed sections, are now expected to conclude by mid-December.Works have also been stalled on Republic Street and the visit to this site saw Minister Patterson urging remobilisation of the contractor to ensure that the project progresses as planned. “These are main streets in New Amsterdam and residents should not have to go through this; we cannot do this to people,” Patterson pointed out to the engineer. Meanwhile, the team from the Ministry also visited the East Bank Berbice road, the second such trip to the project in recent months.Just three weeks ago, Patterson led a team to the project site for a first-hand look at the progress of works to date. He also met with officials from Berbice to discuss infrastructural works being undertaken in the region.last_img read more
