He was born September 26, 1973, the son of Robert E. and Sondra Sue (Benefiel) Leach. His parents and sister in law Sarah Leach preceded him in death. Ehret graduated from Park Hill High School and lived his entire life in this area.
Ehret not only worked as a server in the restaurant industry, but he also had a passion for cooking himself. Prior to his mother’s death in 2019, he enjoyed cooking for her and was always experimenting with new recipes and food presentation. Ehret was an avid Chiefs fan and enjoyed collecting memorabilia, watching games, talking smack, golfing and spending time with friends, family and his beloved dogs.
Survivors include his brother, Robert Leach; nieces, Sophie and Mia and nephew, Jack. He was a friend and mentor to many. He will be dearly missed by his Nick & Jake’s family, and the numerous patrons that he waited on over the last 18 years.
Family and friends will gather to celebrate Ehret’s life at the Meyers Northland Chapel in Parkville on Monday, August 22, 2022. Visitation will begin at 5:00p.m., with a Sharing of Memories time starting at 6:00 p.m. A further celebration of Ehret’s life will commence directly after at the American Legion Post in Parkville. In lieu of flowers, the next time you enjoy a nice dinner out, think of Ehret and tip your server a little extra!
