Blue Bell teen, La Salle College sophomore has passed away

Dylan Joseph Leskusky, a sophomore at La Salle College High School and a Blue Bell native, died on Thursday, February 15. He was 15 years old.

According to a source shared by a La Salle parent, the cause of death was a skiing accident.

Leskusky attended St. Helena’s grade school before transitioning to La Salle College, his obituary said.

From his obituary:

He will be remembered for his huge smile, warm heart, amazing sense of humor, outgoing personality, and incredible ability to bring people together.  

He loved playing golf, soccer, and basketball, was an avid Eagles and Sixers fan, enjoyed vacationing at the beach, staying up late playing video games, taking naps with his dog Toby by his side, and hanging out with his vast group of friends.

He was affectionate and compassionate and never left the house without a huge hug followed by “I Love You Mom & Dad.”

Condolences in his honor include:

Dear Dylan’s loved ones, Dylan was an awesome kid and a true representation of a La Salle brother. I was with him the past few weekends at the dances and he never failed to put a smile on my face. Dylan will always be remember for his unique ability to light up a room. I am sending prayers for Dylan’s family and I will never forget him. Ryan Fandozzi ‘26

Dear loved ones of Dylan, I am thinking about each and every one of you during this difficult time and sending all my thoughts and prayers. Dylan was someone I met during summer school of La Salle, but it wasn’t until the beginning of sophomore year where we really became close friends. We hung out every weekend and we saw each other every chance we could in school. Not a day will go by where I don’t think about the time we spent together, and I will always be grateful to have called him my friend. I hope we meet again someday, Dyl. Luke Kletzel ’26.

My prayers are with the entire Leskusky family. I had the honor of teaching Dylan in freshman English class last year. I will remember his charming smile, genuine spirit and endearing personality. He was seemingly a friend to all his classmates, and it was clear he enjoyed being a part of the La Salle community. He will be missed.

A memorial gathering in his memory will take place on Saturday February 24, from 11:30am to 1:45pm, followed by his Memorial Mass beginning at 2:00pm at La Salle College High School, 8605 W Cheltenham Avenue, Wyndmoor. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in his name can be made to La Salle College High School.
