He was an Army Veteran and a proud patriot. He worked as a truck driver the majority of his life and retired at the age of 57 from Midwest Motor Express of Fargo, ND. After his retirement he devoted his time to helping his wife of 63 years run her real estate company.

LeRoy could be found on the golf course 5 days a week with many of his Mesa friends.
He loved his family dearly and would do anything for them. He was loving, kind, positive, helpful and strong. Mere words cannot begin to describe all the ways in which he touched those around him. His legacy will live on in his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
