    .I’ve always thought that one measure t o determine a life well lived is to ask: Was this person respected by others?
    Leroy served his family, friends, community, church, and country with humility and integrity.
    Yes, he was highly respected in all facets of his life and has earned the distinction of: “A Life well Lived”,

    Marilyn and John, so sorry to read of Leroy’s passing. I can remember on many occasions him and my father doing events with the Lions Club. He and your family were good neighbors and friends to our entire family. As I grow older I realize how much our community of Fairport was a true family. Leroy was a part of that and he will be missed by all. Tom and I are sorry we were unable to attend his service due to prior commitments. God Bless your family and may he help you through this time of sadness.
