LeRoy was a dedicated family man. He enjoyed serving his community, Grand Bend in various ways. He worked for multiple local grocery chains over the years. LeRoy also gave his time to serve grieving families in their time of need at the Grand Bend and Pinery Cemeteries.
LeRoy was a big jokester. He loved to laugh and make people laugh. LeRoy also had a love for food and hockey. The family battles between hockey teams has given his grandkids great memories to hold on too.
Thanks to the staff at Chartwell Parkhill Long Term Care, especially Dr. Andrew Whynot. Also a special thank you to Rev. Dr. Christine O’Reilly at Knox Presbyterian Church for her support and compassion.
A private family memorial will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to Knox Presbyterian Church, Thedford or the LHSF – Neurological Dept. would be appreciated.
