Dear Catherine, Glen, Helen and family, our hearts go out to you at the loss of our LeRoy, as he will be gravely missed. But oh what memories we can cherish in our hearts, as we remember all the wonderful and funny times we shared at the campground. There was never a time that he was either not picking on us, or we were picking on him. One of the most treasured pictures I have is of him and Catherine sleeping on the porch, in complete relaxation and happiness! God bless and keep you, and know he suffers no more, and he will always be in our hearts and memories. We love you all so much !

My deepest sympathy. I used to work with Leroy years ago at Arcadia Garage. He was a great guy to work with. He had a good sense of humor and was easy to work with. In later years when I was working at Jones Motors in Mt Airy I remember he used to stop in once in awhile to say hi.

Dear Cass & Family....Our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of a great man & friend. Leory was more like a Pap than a friend though! We've missed him here at the campground always picking on Steve and of course always bringing us cabbage, tomatoes, and more from his garden!! He was one of a kind for sure. We enjoyed and treasure your visit at the campground in July. Thinking of you and praying for God's comfort & strength in the days to come. May the many fond memories help to give comfort too along with the knowledge of your reunion again another day in heaven. God bless you all.....Love, Steve & Diane

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Catherine and the entire family. LeRoy will be sadly missed by many. It was an honor to know him and spend so many weekends camping next to him. He watched out for us and looked after us as if we his own fammily, which we all were. I know he will still be watching over us and making sure we are all ok. Love you always buddy.
