Nikki, so sorry to hear of your dads passing. He was such a sweet person, who would have thought when we were growing up together that we would be going through this with our fathers in the past 6 months. 😢 I’ll be thinking of you and your family.

My best memories of you are of your rocking out to ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky" and how many times you ate Moo Goo Gai Pan when Judy got hooked on it. The good times, they were all that mattered and ones we should hold dear. You helped to give me two of the sweetest and funniest nieces whom I cherish. Thank you for loving my sister and being such a wonderful father and grandfather. May you rest in peace and rise in glory.

Leroy and I were classmates and shared many classes. Leroy was a great guy and easy to talk to. I wish I lived closer to Philippi so I could visit and see him in person. Let his family know that I inquired about him. May the Lord be with him during his journey to see the Lord and family. God bless you Leroy. Tom Leach

I enjoyed working with and knowing Leroy for many years at the bank. We saw many changes during our time there. He was indeed a very sweet and family oriented person. You could always tell when you was around them and him, how much he loved them. He got along with everyone at the bank...employees and customers alike and everyone thought the world of him. Although I haven't seen him for a while, I'm sure he will be missed. My heartfelt condolences to especially Judy and the girls. Prayers for comfort and peace and for the rest of the family as well.
