WOOSTER – Starting out in the pole position Mike Dobber Leathers started his first race on January 18, 1959. Mike loved car racing and often himself the leader of the pack. Sometimes he was out front by a car length and often was being chased by the greats. Mike’s last race finished on October 15, 2008. As he was rounding the last corner and heading for home we could all see the checkered flag. Mike was surrounded by family as he crossed the winning line.
Mike is survived by a son, Ryan Leathers of Moreland, mother, Betty Jean Leathers and Bob Brady of Naples, FL, Brother, Rod Leathers of Shreve, sister, Robin Sampsel of Jeromesville, Brother, Brian (Suzanne) Leathers of Naples, FL, nieces, Kristin Thornhill and Ashtyn Brady, nephew, Landon Brady .
