Daniel P. Leahy, Esq.

 Former State Senator, City Councilor, Clerk Magistrate and Humanitarian;

 Daniel P. Leahy, Esq., 81, a lifelong Lowell resident, died Wednesday, August 10th at D’Youville Senior Care in Lowell. He was the beloved husband of Gloria J. (Secchiaroli) Leahy who survives him and with whom he celebrated 57 years of marriage on June 6th of this year.
 Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, January 10, 1935, a son of the late John J. Leahy of Ireland and the late Elizabeth (Power) Leahy of Lowell, he attended St. Margaret Grammar School and was a graduate of Keith Academy in the Class of 1952. Following his honorable discharge from the armed forces, he then went on to graduate from Boston College with the Class of 1960 and Suffolk Law School.
 A veteran during the Korean Conflict, Dan proudly served his country in the U.S. Army.
 Dan was a retired local attorney; he served in the Massachusetts General Court as a Massachusetts State Senator for two terms, from 1994-1998.  He believed in term limits and imposed them upon himself after his second term in the Senate. Dan was also a member of the Lowell City Council, elected in 1999, then worked as a Clerk Magistrate in Charlestown, Massachusetts.
  Dan was very active in many clubs and associations, among them: Lowell Bar Association, serving as President, a Board member of Ironstone Farm’s Challenge Unlimited, the Friday Night Card Players, the Saratoga Sojourners, and many more.  He is perhaps best known as founder of Thanksgiving: A Celebration of Life! which he began in Lowell with his brother-in-law Al Lenzi to aid the ministry of Fr.

Gregory’s work in Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe, helping to feed, clothe, and shelter poor children. Helping the poor was a cause close to his heart, and an intrinsic dimension of his Christian faith.
