Life’s journey for Deacon Wilbur Leeks began on December 15, 1936 in Bascom, Florida. He was the first born of Willie and Beatrice Leeks. At an early age the family relocated to Leesburg, Florida where Wilbur attended Lake County Training School.

Some of his career paths included being a Citrus Contractor for many years and later he started his own trucking business. He truly enjoyed being his own boss.

On April 11, 1978, he was united in marriage to Linda Reese.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and godfather.
