Obituary for John Leisher

John Leisher, age 70, of Ulysses, Kansas, died Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at Select Specialty Hospital in Wichita, Kansas. He was born April 11, 1947, in Woodward, Oklahoma, the son of Earl and Mable (Snell) Leisher.

John grew up at Clear Lake, Oklahoma, and graduated from Laverne High School. He then attended Panhandle State University, Northwestern Oklahoma State University, and Seward County Community College. John worked for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol as a dispatcher, then moved to California and worked at Bear Country in Disneyland as a security guard, then moved to Beaver, Oklahoma, and worked as a deputy sheriff. John moved to Ulysses in 1979, and worked for Panhandle Eastern Pipeline for 19 years as a pumper. He also worked at Helmerich and Payne, Bob Wilson Memorial Hospital, and then retired as an Assistant Funeral Director at Garnand Funeral Home. John enjoyed working and was always looking for something to do. He enjoyed playing pranks on people, creating stained glass projects, metal detecting, traveling, and spending time in the mountains. John’s pride and joy was his grandson, whom he loved spending time with. His family was his main priority. John loved God, and attended Country View Baptist Church.

Other survivors include his son, Eric Leisher and wife Natalia of Beaver, Oklahoma; daughter, Kari Figgins and husband Dalyn of Ulysses; brother, Russell Leisher and wife Karen of Beaver, Oklahoma; one grandson, Rylan Figgins; and numerous nieces and nephews.
