Patrick Curtis Leatherwood, 55, passed away Sept. 10, 2021, at home.
Mr. Leatherwood was born Oct. 13, 1965, in East Point, Ga. In 1971, his family moved to Moultrie, Ga., where he grew up and graduated from Colquitt County High School. He then attended the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, where he was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. He graduated in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics.
Shortly after graduation, Mr. Leatherwood started a lifelong career as a sales representative of Link-Belt Cranes. In 1991, he moved to Charlotte, N.C., to continue his career with Owsley & Sons, and was most recently west territory manager with Pinnacle Cranes. He was a dedicated employee and often received top salesman honors.
Mr. Leatherwood had a large personality and made friends easily with his Southern charm, sweet grin and infectious laughter. He loved his three children, listening and singing along with country music, and drinking Budweiser and sharing stories with his friends. Additionally, he was a huge sports fan.
Mr. Leatherwood was an avid golfer and a proud member of Carolina Golf Club. When he was not on the links, you could find him watching/listening to Colquitt County Packers football on Friday nights, UGA football on Saturdays or Atlanta Braves baseball any day they were playing. He also loved coaching his kids' baseball and basketball teams when they were younger.
