Leigh was an avid tennis player and influenced the lives of many students while coaching high school tennis for 38 seasons. Leigh also enjoyed many other athletic activities such as biking, cross country skiing, and running. Leigh enjoyed gardening and making the world a more beautiful place in many ways.
