Leroy was a graduate of Russia High School, Class of 1960. He honorably served his country and community in the U.S. Air Force and as a Firefighter for the Piqua Fire Department. Leroy enjoyed going to the Piqua Senior Center and the friends made there, he was also a member of the American Legion Post 184, and the former Moose and Eagles lodges. He previously was the owner of Mauri's Landing in Fort Loramie and made the best fried chicken.
