James Leo Lednik, 77, was called to his heavenly home on Thursday, November 9, 2023.

He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather, a respected businessman, and a Christian.

Jim graduated from Shady Side High and later went on to John Hopkins University.  He spent his early years as a medical professional focused on nuclear medicine, and retired from the Laurel Park Police force in Hendersonville, NC as a law enforcement officer.  His passions were his love of the Lord, serving as the audio sound man at the Hendersonville Methodist church, scuba diving, playing the drums and making people laugh.

He is survived by his loving wife Katherine Lednik, daughter Carol Boyer, her husband Scott Boyer and grandson Brett Boyer.

We know that he is living his best life now and he will be reunited with his family one day.

Condolences may be sent to the Lednik family at or C/O Jackson Funeral Service 1101 Greenville Highway, Hendersonville, NC 28792. Please include the name of the deceased on the condolence.
