James Leschak passed away on March 22, 2021, at age 79. Services will be held at Epiphany Episcopal Church in Lebanon, TN, on May 1. “Jim” was born in Pittsburgh, PA, to Pauline Case and Michael Leschak.

He served nearly thirty years as a pharmacist, with more than twenty years as the Pharmacy Manager at Treasury/Eckerd Drugs in Hermitage, TN. As a life-long reader, he accepted a part-time position at the Mt. Juliet Library, serving his local community for more than fifteen years. He loved watching classic films, studying military history and space exploration, and traveling to the beach and national landmarks. He also enjoyed playing golf with his family as a Ravenwood Country Club member in Donelson, TN. He believed in family first, and the time he spent with his daughters and grandchildren was cherished above all else. Forever known as “Gigi” by his grandchildren and many others, Jim is survived by daughters Andrea (Jason Newby) Leschak and Christine (Brett) Gipson, grandchildren Will Gipson and Maya Gipson, niece Katie (Josh) Nordeen, nephew Mike (Megan) Leschak, and great-nieces Hany and Millie Nordeen. He is preceded in death by parents Michael Leschak and Pauline (Vincent) Safranek, and brother Michael Leschak. Instead of flowers, donations to the Mt. Juliet Library or the Nashville Zoo would be greatly appreciated. Sellars Funeral Home, Lebanon TN, 615.444.9393.
