I vividly remember LeRoy as "Santa Clause" at Hewlett Packard Christmas parties for the kids of HP employees. He not only looked the part - his warm, relaxed interactions with the kids were really special. LeRoy was one of the people that made HP-Greeley a very special place to work.

LeRoy is going to be greatly missed by Darrell & I. Darrell is going to really miss going to your house and working on your RV and then always enjoying a cup of mocha and a cookie and spending the time just talking. Love you both very much, Love Carolyn & Darrell

Bro. LeRoy has parked his camper and laid down his working tools. His smile will certainly be missed by his fellow members of National Camping Travelers.

Every time I saw Leroy he brightened my day. I loved his outlook on life, his energy and the twinkle in his eye. The world is a bit darker with his departure. I’m confident that we will meet again on the other side of glory. Goodbye my friend.
