Early life and start of career
Leahy was born in Montpelier, Vermont, the son of Alba and Howard Francis Leahy, a printer. He has been legally blind in his left eye since birth. Leahy’s maternal grandparents were Italian, and his father was of Irish ancestry; some of his ancestors came to Vermont in the 19th century to work at the granite quarries and manufacturing plants in Barre Town and Barre City. Leahy is a 1957 graduate of Montpelier’s St. Michael’s High School. He graduated from Saint Michael’s College in 1961 with a bachelor of arts degree in political science.
In 1964, Leahy received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. He was admitted to the bar and became an associate at the firm headed by Philip H. Hoff, then serving as Governor of Vermont. In May 1966, Hoff appointed him to fill a vacancy as State’s Attorney of Chittenden County. Leahy was elected to a full term in 1966 and reelected in 1970. His service as state’s attorney was notable for his participation in the sting operation that caught Paul Lawrence, an undercover police officer for numerous departments in Vermont.
Leahy married Marcelle Pomerleau in 1962. Her parents, Louis Philippe Pomerleau and Cecile Bouchard Pomerleau, emigrated to the United States from Quebec, and she is bilingual (English and French). The extended Pomerleau family established several successful Vermont businesses, and includes her uncle Antonio Pomerleau (d. 2018), a prominent real estate developer and philanthropist.
Marcelle Leahy graduated from the nursing school at Burlington’s former DeGoesbriand Hospital. She is a registered nurse and has worked at hospitals in Burlington, Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Virginia. The Leahys have resided in a farmhouse in Middlesex, Vermont, since moving from Burlington, and have three children: Kevin, Alicia, and Mark. In 2012, the Leahys celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, with Leahy saying, “We hate it when we’re apart from one another.”
