Brian K. Leland, 41, of Wescott Street in Limerick, died following a brief illness on Wednesday evening on February 10, 2016 at his home.
Brian was born on July 9, 1974 in Sanford the son of Robert L. and Joyce E. (Stone) Leland. He attended local schools and Massabesic High School.
Brian was very talented with most carpentry needs and enjoyed puttering with small engines; such as lawn mowers and weed whackers. He worked for Sprague Electric for a few years in Sanford. Brian liked to go to Fryeburg Fair and entered the Biggest Pumpkin contest and won. He was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed going to see the races in Loudon, NH to root for his favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. He was content to be at home or out and about with his friends; sharing stories, teasing one another and watching the local town politics on television.
Brian’s greatest highlight of his life was his son, Aedin, who will be twelve years old. Together, they spent time fishing and braved the cold weather to include ice fishing on the many local lakes in the area. They took numerous pictures and watched as the Eagles would land on the frozen lake to eat some of their fish. He loved his son unconditionally and spending time with him.
Brian will be dearly missed by his parents, Robert and Joyce Leland of Limerick; his son, Aedin B. Leland of Standish; his two brothers, Scott K. Leland and his girlfriend, Kelly Gilpatrick of Limerick and David A. Leland and wife Karen and their children, Brandon, Garret, and Faith of Max Meadows, VA; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
