Our brother-in-law was an inspiration and mentor with his faith and love for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He loved his life with
his awesome wife, Phyllis and his children and grandchildren.
We will miss his stories and his loyalty to friends and family.
Rest in peace with Jesus and this is what you’ve worked for
for the last few years. Heaven has gained another angel.
We love you and wait for us at the gate.

I only knew Leroy for a few months in a Bible Study but he was a spiritual man with great spiritual insight. I’m sure he will be missed because he is loved, but he is also in a place of bliss with no pain and suffering because Leroy is in the presence of our Lord! Ken J

Oh Phyllis. I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband. There are no words to describe how sorry I am. Leroy was a wonderful Christian man and you were blessed to have him as your mate but that does not heal the sorrow you are going through now. Please call me any time and I will be praying for God to bring you through this difficult time.

Leroy was such an incredible mentor, friend, brother in Christ and more to me. He so kindly offered his wisdom and encouragement at every chance given. Leroy’s love in action towards me drastically changed my life for the better, but then again that’s who Leroy was. A man of integrity, kindness , wisdom, and certainly faith- who impacted many for the Kingdom of God! I am eternally grateful.
My heart goes out to his family and I am praying for comfort and peace only God can provide at such a time as this.
