Michael “Mike” Greene Leggett, 55, of Leland passed away Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center following a brief illness.
Mike was born on August 24, 1957, the son of the late William and Lois Leggett.
He is survived by his wife of 8 months, Linda Leggett; one son, Alex Leggett of Wilmington, NC; one brother, Ernie Leggett of Arizona and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Mike was very active in the community. He was a member of the Unity Group of North Brunswick, the Italian Festival committee, a past officer of the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, and was co-owner of the Local News Review Newspaper, which has ceased publication.
Mike was always on top of the news in the Leland area and very passionate about what he reported. He always wrote the truth and made sure that his “sources” were creditable and trust worthy. He never back down on an article, even as controversial as it may have been.
His face was very familiar around the race tracks in the area. He loved being able to announce races on occasions and operated an internet racing program. And if you were ever at an event in the area, you could always find Mike with camera in hand, snapping off shots right and left. Mike will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will be held at 4:00pm, Saturday, November 10, 2012 at the First Baptist Church of Leland. Visitation will be held at the church one hour prior to the service.
