5/31/2022 - David Leff Memorial Service

It is with great sadness that the Town of Canton learned of the sudden passing of David Leff this past weekend.  David's love of Canton/Collinsville, and his many works, both written and tangible, will be forever entwined into the fabric of this town.  A memorial service will be held tonight, May 31st, at 6:30pm on the Collinsville Green.  This is the place that David loved the best, and his family plans a joyful remembrance of his many interests and accomplishments in his too-short, but busy life.

If you knew David and would like to join us, please bring your own chairs and plan to come a little early to park and set up your chairs. If at all possible, the family asks that you carpool. 

Parking is available in the church parking lot on South Street, the Town Hall Parking lot on Main Street, or the Museum parking lot along the rail trail off Main Street. Please note that The Green will be closed to vehicular traffic.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made in David’s name to one of the following non-profit organizations:
Roaring Brook Nature Center,, 70 Gracey Road, Canton, CT  06019
Collinsville Historical Society,, 11 Front Street, Collinsville, CT 06019
Gallery on the Green,, 5 Canton Green Road, Canton, CT 06019
Collinsville Volunteer Fire Department, 51 River Rd, Canton, CT 06019
Audubon Connecticut,, 613 Riversville Road, Greenwich, CT 06831 (note: this is the CT Chapter for National Audubon, not the CT Audubon Society)
