By

Donald G. Leidich
Donald G. Leidich, 79, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2014 after braving an extended illness.  Don was born November 25, 1934, in Allentown PA to Russel and Miriam Leidich. He met his forever sweetheart, Mary Keller, during his senior year of high school.  One week after graduating from Lehigh University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, he and Mary married. They recently celebrated 57 years together.
Don served in the United States Army from 1957 to 1959, during which time he and Mary welcomed their first daughter, Susan.  He then was employed by US Steel for 22 years.  While living in Pittsburgh, PA, Don and Mary greeted their second daughter, Cindy.
In 1973, the family relocated to Newnan GA where Don owned and operated Don's Total Services, a heating, air, electrical and plumbing business.  Don was an active member of the Newnan Elks Club, the Kiwanis Club, the First United Methodist Church and the Veatch Nixon Sunday School class. He and Mary have made such very good friends during all of their travels and relocations and enjoyed staying in touch with those at a distance and spending time with those close to home.  Don loved talking with his friends over coffee, trips in his motor home, traveling to visit friends and spending time with his family.  He was also an avid car buff and loved to drive.  This included not only his motor home, but at one time or another, a school bus for Coweta County, his church's bus, and a golf cart for visitors at the hospital.
Don was a wonderful father who traveled the world to visit his daughters. He was relied on to lend a hand during their numerous moves.  Dad was the first call when there was a home repair need or a broken down car. He loved to figure things out, and then teach others how they worked.  His grandchildren were very special to him, and he was so proud of all their accomplishments. Even though they are all scattered about, he always asked about each one and kept up with their busy lives.
Don is survived by his loving wife, Mary (Keller) of Newnan. His daughter Susan Markle, her husband Jeff, and their children Andrew and Kara live in Peachtree City, GA.  Daughter Cindy Tomaro, her husband Joe, and their daughters, Kristen and Stephanie live in Pittsburgh, PA.  
Visitation will be Wednesday, February 19, 5-7 p.m. at McKoon Funeral home in Newnan. A memorial service will be held Thursday, February 20 at 1 p.m. in the chapel at McKoon Funeral  home.  Those desiring may make contributions in Don Leidich's name to First United Methodist Church of Newnan.

Robert Matthew Nolan
Robert Matthew Nolan arrived in this world on March 7, 1934 and departed peacefully on February 13, 2014.  Bob lived his life as a beloved son, brother, uncle, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
Bob was born in Milford, Connecticut and as a young man joined the Marines and saw some of the world during the Korean War.  He returned to Milford and started to raise his family.  An opportunity for work moved the family from Milford to Whittier, California in 1978.  And, yes, Bob built the kids the pool they were promised! 
While continuing to raise his family, Bob was proud of his work as a tool and die, manufacturing engineer and enjoyed filling his free time playing softball, golf and was an avid crossword puzzle solver.  Bob remained in California until 2001 when a visit to the beautiful, golf-centric, Peachtree City, Georgia made it easy to decide where and when to retire.  A  place where he and his wife, Jan, could play golf just about every day, be close to family, make new friends, work as a marshal on the golf course and travel, including trips to the casinos.  This filled his days as they created a home and peaceful final resting place in Peachtree City. 
Bob was preceded in death by first wife June Rose, brother Tom, son Robert John and daughter Laura Elizabeth.  He is survived by his loving wife of 15 years Janice Nolan, brother John Nolan and sister-in-law Karen Nolan, sister Jane Hildebrandt, brother Paul Nolan, daughter Lisa Germain and son-in-law Derrick Germain, son Jeffrey Nolan and daughter-in-law Kelle Nolan, step-daughter Robin Smith and husband Scott Smith, step-daughter Rondie Martin and husband Paul Martin, thirteen grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and Miss Molly (the cat).
Thank you Bob for living a full life!  You will be greatly missed and remembrance of you will put a smile on our faces!
