Leroy Alan Harding


Leroy Alan Harding died unexpectedly with his mother April 22, 2018. Born Oct. 29, 1960, he is a son of Erlene and Percy Harding of Bar Harbor.

Leroy was well known and well loved by many in the community, especially MDI Hospital, where he worked in the kitchen since 1981. No one is or ever will be as special as Leroy.

He loved going to karaoke at Little A’s; did he ever love to sing and dance! He did not marry or have children, but he took his role as godfather for his nephew, Sean, very seriously.

Leroy is survived by his father, brothers: Percy Jr. (Lisa); Dale (Christine); and Raymond. He is survived by nieces and nephews: Nathan (Christy), Alexander, Garrett Harding (Jerika Ouelette); Meagan, Sean and Holly Harding; William DeLaittre (Jazmine Ortuno); Reese and Zachary Harding; Anneliese and Lilia Murphy, Vivian DeLaittre and her brother due in July. Uncles and Aunts: Joyce, Donald, Esther, Peter, Stanley, Gail and Shirley along with many cousins.

Leroy was predeceased by Aunts Helen Bennett, Lillian Wentworth, and Betty Gooch; Uncles Erwin and Carroll Spooner and Robert Harding.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, June 2, at Somesville Union Meeting House, Somesville. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Downeast Horizons 1200 State Highway 3, Bar Harbor, ME or a charity of your choice.
