We went to uncle Leroy’s house almost every year for thanksgiving. As silly as it is,one of my fondest memories with him is throwing hacky sacks at him. I always enjoyed playing in the dog kennel outside, too! Since I moved away, he had been sending me messages on Facebook to check in and see how I was doing and how my family was. He will be greatly missed!
We lost a good one. We will greatly miss LeRoy as will many. Fly High Buddy. Our deepest sympathies
