Leo D. Daley, age 78, of S. Weymouth passed away suddenly on Thursday, March 11, 2021. Leo was born, raised, and educated in Dorchester. After high school he started a career in printing before serving in the Army for two years during the Vietnam War.
Leo married his beloved wife, Penny, in 1971 and they started a family in Wollaston before settling in Weymouth in 1977. Leo worked as a printer for almost 30 years before he retired. Being a true jack-of-all-trades he started using his talents to help neighbors and friends in any way that he could.
Leo could often be found sitting on his bench in the front yard of his home on Pond St. holding court with those walking by. He also loved attending his grandchildren’s sporting events and simply being with his family.
