I met Leroy while living in New Meadows Idaho. He was a genuine, loving, caring individual, and a very good personal friend. He was very professional but gave a break if it was deserved. The local kids loved him, the older folks respected him . The day Leroy left us will be a day I will always remember. Every trip I make to Idaho I stop at the location where Leroy passed and say a prayer for him.
Leroy you will always be remembered, honored and respected. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life, if only for a few short years. God bless you my friend.
