LEAHY, John Archie

“Archie” was born to Archie and Alice (Lahey) Leahy on December 16, 1931 in Louisbourg, Cape

Returning to Cape Breton he married his wife of 56 years, Marguerite May LeBlanc (Margaret)
and settled in Louisbourg, his family home.
After a long career of being an owner/operator for C.B. Dairy Co-Op. He and Margaret built and
operated the Fleur de lis Motor Inn in Louisbourg before they retired to the Mira River. Archie
was not one to slow down and continued to work as a lobster fisherman.
Archie enjoyed diving, travelling with Margaret and spending winters in Florida. He could
always be counted on to take anyone for a ride on the Mira on his boat the Amy Lynn or to take
out his guitar to play a tune with all his bandmates.
