His love for anything U of M is evident to anyone who knew him, and utter distain for anything green and white except his lumber degree he received there. During his time as a police officer, he had the honor and privilege to give his wife her first (and only) ticket in his own truck. He greatly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, teaching them how to cook, tend to the garden, driving his Gator, and even rolling grandma’s cigarettes. Leroy enjoyed watching his grandsons play football and baseball. He loved tending to their property, and the home they built together. (Deemed as “One Hell of a House Bitch”) But most of all, he adored and loved being with his wife. (As long as it didn’t interrupt watching The Young and the Restless) He always made time for those in need, giving his energy, time and resources freely. He will be greatly missed.
