I will miss Leroy... I remember caring for him and his brother when they lived together and then caring for Leroy at Bonell. He had such a beautiful smile and soul! We became close and he adored my daughter Sadie, he would call her his sister and they would exchange their artwork! RIP Leroy, you were deeply loved and will be missed❤️

I am a Care Pastor in this area and had the privilege to visit and get to know Leroy and his roommate Ward. Has some wonderful visits over the past couple of years. If he wasn't in is room he was in the commons area playing a card game with his roommate and his family. RIP Leroy.

For now sadness is invading our hearts and we feel a deep pain, but little by little we will learn to cope with it until the moment in which we will remember him with much love and above all with enormous gratitude for the many beautiful moments he gave us.
Gayleen and Greg so hard to hear of the loss of your dear friend Leroy. Remember you both did good and will be blessed in return for all you did for Leroy. I have a feeling Leroy did more for you than you did for him... great friends you three were!

Thinking of you both and what a wonderful ole Buddy you had in Leroy. Prayers are still going your way hoping to ease your pain. It is great to know you have so many wonderful memories to remember. All your trips to the mountains that you all enjoyed with him. Go fly high on that mountain Leroy :) Love you both, Arleen and Payday

The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.
Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again Leroy.
I love you and will miss you dearly.
