In Loving Memory

After retirement, Leroy enjoyed spending time with his family, watching football and going to the casino. In 2016, Leroy entered an assisted living facility until he suffered a stroke and his dementia required him to move to a facility that could provide him the level of care needed to keep him safe.

His final days were spent at Emmanuel Hospital and Maple Crest Nursing Home before he was called home on February 1, 2022.
