American Patriotic 10


Leon Robert Dermer

1942 - 2021



Capt. Leon Robert Dermer, 78, of Islamorada, Florida passed away on June 13, 2021 as a result of COPD.  He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Jenifer, as well as a son, Aron Dermer, two daughters, Amy and Amanda Dermer a granddaughter, Hannah Dermer and a step-daughter Jessica Drake.

Leon was a brilliant businessman, with a career that started with making clothing.  His knowledge of business allowed him to become a business consultant.  Throughout his life, he was a successful president of many corporations.

He was also an Army Veteran and a USCG Captain.  One of his favorite positions in life was as Captain of his 47' Rybovich, Happy Times, which he chartered off the dock at Hawk's Cay Marina.    His most recent success was Captain's Imports in Key Largo, where he built a beautiful gallery of sea life art in many mediums.

Leon will be remembered as a person of startlingly quick wit, brilliance and a gentle heart.  Those who knew Leon will remember him as the ultimate story-teller with a bigger-than-life personality.  He could do some dazzling card tricks and played poker with the best of them.  The world is a different place without him.

Leon requested that no service would be performed on his passing and that in lieu of any flowers, a donation could be made to the World Parrot Mission, 99150 Overseas Highway, Key Largo, FL  33037.

Dear Dad,

I am so sorry we did not say goodbye. My fondest memories are those when you were in your happy place; the helm of one of your many boats. You loved the water and your role as a captain. You always knew I would be the one to get sea sick and you planned accordingly with a concoction of medication. I hope you are resting peacefully. Love, Amy

Dear Dad

I hope you are at peace. I am glad to read about all of your accomplishments. However my favorite memories of you are from a very different time a very long time ago before boats and businesses. I think of the times we shared with My sister Amy and Brother Aron. It seems like a lifetime ago. We did love you very much. We are your children. Until we meet again. Your Daughter Amanda
