It is with a heavy heart and sad soul to report the passing of Will Leishman on April 25, 2022 at Alliance, NE. He will always be in our thoughts and memories, gone but never forgotten.

William Delmer “Will” Leishman was born March 6, 1974. Will started early life growing up at the family’s homestead ranch in Ellsworth, Nebraska with his Grandparent’s Delmer and Ada Leishman (both passed). He loved working with his Grandpa on the ranch and learned how to how to manage cattle on a ranch along with a very good work ethic.

He spent a year with his mother Debra (Kommers) Cheshire and step-father David Cheshire, while David was serving in the United States Air Force. These were a great time for the family, creating great memories in the Sicilian culture.

Will returned to the family ranch where he continued operations until he was in a significant auto accident leaving him severely disabled. He spent his final years at a care facility in Hemingford, Nebraska, where he passed away from unforeseen medical complications.

Will had a gregarious personality, always in for a good laugh or a good tease! Everyone was always welcome at his place for a cup of coffee or a beer. He had insurmountable stories that he enjoyed telling, which would end up with a laugh or smile.

He will be missed, but he is in a better place now surrounded by family with the ability to walk and run through the Nebraska Sandhills which he truly loved.

He is survived by his mother , Debra Cheshire, his father ,  Randy Leishman, his stepfather, David Cheshire,  his sisters,  Brandi Wonacott and her husband Andrew Wonacott and Cristy Romero and her husband Riley Romero and his brother , Clint Leishman.
