Leith accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at a young age attending Northside COGIC and never lost his faith and he took every opportunity to profess his love for Christ He enjoyed spending quality time with family and friends, especially Iris grandchildren whom he adored. Leith looked forward to every chance he could get to teach his grandsons the game of football and convince them to become diehard Dallas Cowboys fans as he was. He was a joy to be around and the life of any party. His amazing ability to read the room and uplift spirits was next level. You'd usually catch him providing a substantial history lesson surrounding hip-hop or sharing his amazing vocals as he recited his version of an R&B classic! Leith's love for music, food and creative ability was greatly appreciated. Usually any rhyme he spat included, 'I'm C-O-O-L Leith" and ending with "FaSho". That's how you knew bars were to follow. Leith absolutely loved being a father and was extremely proud of the accomplishments his children have obtained thus far. He was a protector and motivator at all times. When he wasn't spending time with family and friends, Leith loved experiencing different cultures through food and sharping his history skills. He truly was an absolutely GENIUS.! He would then allow those different cultures to shine through in dishes he prepared, as cooking was a hobby. Leith made a living being a leader in any organization he aligned Iris skill set with, His passion for food and and exceptional customer service landed him multiple roles as a General Manager for well-known establishments throughout Iris career, It was through those roles that afforded him the opportunity to drive impact through enhancing the customers experience and driving the bottom line. Leith's character and PURE heart allowed everyone around him to gravitate towards him. You knew after being around him or chatting with him you'd leave feeling uplifted and at minimum, laughing!
