Leroy and I met about 20 years ago at a construction company named Williams Industries. Around 2006 we got to work together again at Bass Construction for about 12 years until we both retired. Leroy was extremely organized and would take care of stuff that nobody else seemed to be able to do. I can honestly say I have never known a more positive and inspiring person than Leroy. He was a dedicated family man and never hesitated to help his family in any way. He was a strong Christian man and he will be missed by everyone that knew him.
