June 6, 2017 Death of Don Leslie
From Brother Mike Flaherty:PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THE PASSING OF. COL. DON LESLIE, OF THE PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY DIV. OF THE MARYLAND PARK POLICE DEPT. DON WAS THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE MARYLAND STATE POLICE CHIEF’S ASSOCIATION AND CERTAINLY HELPED ME AND OUR DEPARTMENT FOR MANY YEARS. HE AND ETHEL WERE VERY DEAR FRIENDS. DON WAS AN EXCELLENT LEADER AND A TRUE GENTLEMAN, WHICH IS VERY RARE TODAY. PLEASE KEEP THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS AND ADVISE THEIR MANY FRIENDS OF HIS DEATH.HE WILL BE MISSED AND WELL REMEMBERED BY THOSE OF US WHO HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING HIM…… THANK YOU, MIKE FLAHERTYI regret to inform you that My father Don Leslie Sr passed away at the age of 85. I personally want to thank you for your friendship as my father cherished it. I also want to apologize for this impersonal notification but we have not been able to locate your phone number. My mom is taking this pretty hard. They have been married 62 years. She can be reached at 941-764-7446.The immediate family has had a small celebration of life gathering and at the request of both my mom and dad no other services will be held. Both wanted his passing to be private. At age 81 our family is also concerned about my mothers heath and getting her through this difficult time. My wife Kitty and I are taking care of all the notifications for her. No flowers or contributions are necessary. My mother asks that anyone who insists on making a contribution, to make a donation it in his name to their former church in West Virginia (Rock Grove Baptist Church, c/o James Bailey, 102 Sleeth Run Road, Linn, WV. 26384).
One final note. My father suffered a stroke some time ago during carotid artery surgery. Not only did he loose the vision in his left eye but is mobility was affected. He mostly had problems breathing which became more severe right around the time you had the retired gathering in Port Charlotte. He became pretty adamant about staying home and taking it easy about this time. We had a difficult time getting him to go to any gatherings or outings and obeyed his wishes to be more private and stay home. Again, thank you and Patty for your friendship to my mom and dad. He was very fond of you both personally and professionally, but I know you already know that. Gods speed to you both.
Don & Kitty Leslie and Family

April 12, 2017 June 30 to July 3 Gathering in Punta Gorda
I've received a couple of calls about the get-to-gather here in Punta Gorda in June. There are rooms available and it appears that some of you may have booked at the Wyvern Hotel and not under the Prince Georges County Police Florida booking. If you booked, please call the hotel [ (941) 639-7700 Summer Holman ] and make sure you're under our banner for the special rate.
The hotel notified me this morning that they are receiving outside reservations for the July 4th holiday, so they are closing our block of rooms on May 15th to allow them to accept holiday reservations. if you wish to come join us, please don't procrastinate any longer. This hotel is well sought after for the July 4th Fireworks on the River due to the panorama view on the upper pool deck and bar.
For the people that live in the region, let me know if you are able to attend so the ones coming from out of the area will know your going to be here.
Hope to see many of us there.
