Leroy was born in Grants and raised in El Rancho, New Mexico. After high school he enrolled in the United States Army. After serving several tours overseas he returned home to study drafting at Northern New Mexico Vocational School. While studying he developed a true passion for drafting which led him into a successful career, ultimately retiring from Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Leroy was an amazing man that enjoyed all that life had to offer. He was kindhearted and had a place in his heart for every person that crossed his path. He was an amazing son, brother, father, grandfather and friend that was always willing to help others. He loved fishing, building projects and being a handyman. His greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family. Leroy will always be remembered for the immense love for his family, and the friendships he shared with so many.
A memorial service will take place August 4th at 6:00 pm at the DeVargas Funeral Home in Espanola, New Mexico with burial to follow on August 5th at 9:00 am at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.
