 Seth Leathers, 16, was a Junior at Weeki Wachee High School.   He was killed in a car wreck on US 19 and Osceola Drive on April 18, 2018 when a pickup truck hit the 2001 Mustang he was riding in around 3:30PM.  Leathers and his friend Garret Herman, 17 (the driver) were on their way to church to play basketball. Herman is still in critical condition.


According to reports, the two friends, traveling southbound, were making a left hand turn onto Country Road just south of Osceola and were hit by an oncoming northbound pickup truck traveling in the outside lane.

His family and friends, students and staff at Weeki Wachee High are mourning the young man whose nickname was “Big Boi.”  

His memorial service took place on Sunday April 22, 2018.  His obituary reads in part, “He was a kind, intelligent, gentle soul…”  The writer describes him as a “video game all nighter, group enforcer, and group comedian.” And continues, “The powers that be must’ve saw something great because he leaves us WAY TOO early…”

The community has come together to support Leathers’ family in their time of need. A YouCaring Fundraiser organized by Kara Jacobs, Erika Darkes, Kim Drewniak, Morgan Burburan and Karen Brown has raised $1,884 over their $5,000 goal so far.  The funds will be applied to funeral and memorial service costs.
