On Thursday, April 27, 2023, Peter Warren LeShane, loving husband of Regina O’Grady-LeShane, died at his home in Waltham at the age of 83. Regina was the love of his life for forty years.
Born in Boston on November 21, 1939, he was a son to the late Warren H.J. and Doris (Morrell) LeShane. A life-long resident of Waltham, Peter graduated from Waltham High School in 1957 and served in the Air Force from 1957-1961. He was stationed at Ethan Allen Air Force Base in Vermont.
His love for the Green Mountain State of Vermont began with his time in the Air Force. What Peter enjoyed the most was working in his wood lot in Mount Holly, Vermont. Peter believed that he was a steward of the land and nurtured the wild apples trees that he loved as did his dear late friend, Brother Columba, OSB, of Weston Priory, Weston, Vermont. Peter was also a friend of Bill W's for 51 grateful years.
In addition to his wife, Regina, he is survived by his daughter, Sarah LeShane of Rutherfordton, NC and grandson, Steven Benjamin and his wife, Lauren of Charleston, SC. He was a dear friend of Robert and Catherine Sanford and their sons and families. The late Brother John Fowler, CSS was his mentor and dear friend. He shared laughter and deep conversations with his dear friends, David Kennedy, Brent Coffin and Rob Bacon.
