Former Mayor Frank Leak 1927-2020

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that former Mayor Frank Leak passed away on November 18, 2020. For more than two decades, Frank served as the Mayor of the Village of Colonie. He truly loved his Village and was very proud of its many accomplishments over the years. Frank lived in the Village of Colonie for more than 50 years and served as our Mayor for 24 years. He was a force in the community. He always wanted people to know that his door was always open. He felt that it was his responsibility as Mayor to take care of the people in his community. Along with the entire Village staff, Frank achieved many of his goals…a safe and prosperous community for all residents. Frank was proud of all the programs and facilities that were created under his watch, especially the Amphitheater for the Arts, that bears his name. Frank always had a special place in his heart for all the children and seniors of the Village. We extend sincere condolences to his wife, Mae, his daughters and all family members. Frank, may you rest in peace, and know that we shall proudly carry on your vision today, tomorrow and into the future.
