Mr. Peter Calvin Leonard was born to the late L.C. George Leonard and the late Mary Lee Watson of Sylvester, Georgia on December 14, 1949. He departed this life at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. Peter Calvin received his education in the Worth County Public School System and graduated from J. W. Holley High School in 1968. He began his career working at Brigadier Homes in Sylvester, GA. He later went to work at Firestone in Albany, GA until it closed. He later got a job working at Terra Chemicals in Sylvester, Georgia. He ended his career and retired as a Supervisor at Adama Warehouse in Tifton, Georgia. While he was working and even after his retirement, he never gave up his side hustle of being one of the most well-known handymen in Sylvester, Georgia. He never met a carpentry issue that he could not master. He was a simple man who loved to spend time with his family and friends. Whenever we had any type of family gathering, he would always look for the meat and banana pudding. If you knew him even a little bit, you knew that he was a die-hard Pittsburg Steeler’s fan. You would not see him any day of the week without wearing something related to his favorite team. When football season was not in, and he wasn’t able to watch a game, he loved to watch westerns and just about any classic television show. Back in the day, you would catch him riding his motorcycle or hanging out in the pool hall. He was an avid pool player who won many trophies. He was preceded in death by his wife, Charlie Mae Leonard of Sylvester, Georgia. He leaves to cherish his memories one son, Calvin Leonard, Jr. of Sylvester, Georgia and five daughters Shelia (Elbert) Blount of Sumner, Georgia; Cathy (Marcus) Johnson of Leesburg, Georgia; Shermille Leonard of Warner Robins, Georgia, and Tanisha “Binky”Leonard of Sylvester, Georgia. He also had another daughter who proceeded him in death at 4 months old, Nashira Leonard. He also leaves three brothers and three sisters: Levon (Dorothy) Watson and Corene Watson, and Edward Charles Watson all three of St. Petersburg, Florida; Georgia Ann (the late Sammy) Chambers of Sylvester, Georgia; Cleveland (Wanda) Jackson of Ocala Florida; and Ruby (George) Tift of Sylvester, Georgia; six grandchildren Yanique (Braxton) Hall, Justin Blount, Aureon Marshall, Taylor Manuel, Caitlin Leonard, and Alexander Manuel; one great grandchild Gaia Hall and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
