Obituary for Mr. Leo Shearn

April 17, 2013
Somers Point, New Jersey


Leo Shearn, 68, of Somers Point passed away surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday April 17, after a lengthy illness. Leo was born in Philadelphia, served in the Air Force in Korea and settled in South Jersey in the 1970s. He was well known for his many fine attributes, among them being a quality builder of homes (not houses) along the shore area, and in recent years, the building of his and his wife's dream home in North Carolina. He never varied from his kind and gentle caring for all those he loved and cared about - and his word, which was his bond. Integrity and character were the hallmarks he lived by.
Leo will be greatly missed by his wife Kay Wallace Shearn, his four children Deanna Torgerson of Virginia; Leo Shearn Jr (Regina) of Ardmore; Patti Liguori (Robert) of Absecon; Liz Wilson of Absecon. Also his grandchildren who he loved so dearly, Garrette Torgerson, Alex, Ryan, Tori and Liam Shearn, Ashleigh Liguori, Ryley Wilson. Leo's many friends will feel the loss of his sound judgment, his thoughtful advice and loyal friendship.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Leo's Life Celebration and gathering on Monday, April 22, from 11am to 12 noon at Jeffries and Keates Funeral Home 228 Infield Ave, Northfield NJ. Service will follow at 12 noon. Burial will be private. To share your fondest memory of Leo please visit
