Life Story / Obituary
With deepest sorrow we announce that Kristophier James Leach, age 22–a beloved son, brother, and friend to many—passed away on Monday, May 2nd 2022 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He is survived by his parents, Tom and Debbie, his sister Melissa, his brothers Christiian and Ryan, his nieces McKinley and Jordyn, and his nephews Camden, Elijah, and Micah. Born in Detroit and raised in Canton, Kristophier and his twin brother Christiian were welcomed into the Leach family as a son and brother, immediately bringing joy and light into our lives.
Kristophier was a passionate poet and musician who wanted nothing more than to share his gifts and unique perspective with the world. In his own words, he ‘never forgot where he came from,’ and was proud of his origins, his past, and his identity, which defined him. His warmth, sincerity, and passion will be missed by all those he touched.
Just as he never forgot his roots, we will never forget the joy and happiness he brought us. Although we will always wish for more time with our son, brother, and friend, he left an indelible mark on us all and we cherish the time we had with him.
God bless you Kristophier. May you find joy, peace, and contentment in your rest. You were, and always will be, deeply loved.
