LeRoy was a loving husband, dad and grandpa. He loved being outdoors and as a farmer, he was self-sufficient and could do just about anything.

He loved horsepower, both figurative in his vehicles which he liked and literally liked horsepower in his actual horses. He was a member of the Sheriff's Posse and loved all kinds of animals. LeRoy also enjoyed trying his luck at the casino every now and then.
