Phil was born June 7, 1932 in Huntington, IN to Peter & Francis (Ferguson) Leskow. He served honorably in the US Army during the Korean War. Phil married Alice M. Proxmire on January 13, 1956 in Jelico, TN.
Mr. Leskow worked several years at Ohio Art in Bryan, OH before coming to Coldwater. He worked many years at Quincy Products and RB&W Tool & Die, from which he retired.
Phil was a jokester and story teller and fondly referred to as the “Lottery King.” He was an outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing and spent much time working on cars and tinkering, as he could fix anything. Phil loved food and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He loved to sing songs to his grandkids, play games and give them go cart rides.
Phil is survived by his wife Alice, his children Carmen (Martin) Gochenour, Carey (David) Steffey, Clair “Butch” (Brenda) Leskow all of Coldwater, his siblings Richard (Carolyn) Leskow of Toledo, OH, Joseph Leskow of Greenwood, IN, Grace Kiessling of Erie,MI, Nellie Brown of Greenfield, IN, Roland (Phyllis) Leskow of Defiance, OH, his grandchildren Brian (Ashley) Gochenour, Adam (Sarah) Gochenour, Kyle (Karissa) Steffey, Andrew (Michelle) Leskow, Erin (Josh) Emington; great grandchildren Keegan, Kaleb & Khloe Gochenour, Cole & Grace Gochenour and Oaklyn Steffey, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant brother Paul Evan Leskow.
