He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Lucille; his sister, Catherine Kennedy; his six children Kathleen, Michael, Daniel, James, Timothy and Barry; as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Leroy was born 1928 in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from St. Petersburg High School. He served honorably in the U.S. Air Force during both World War II and the Korean War. He retired in 1984 from Florida Power Corp. as a distribution procedures analyst after 30 years of service. Raising his children, he especially enjoyed taking family camping vacations. After retirement, he worked as a trip advisor for AAA. His love for travel led to many trips with his wife both abroad and around the United States. His RV proudly displayed the license plate "spending my children's inheritance". He was well liked by his many friends at RV parks across the U.S. for his willingness to lend an ear, help anyone in need and for his "Fighting Irish" baseball caps. He displayed the gift of Irish blarney and a ready smile for everyone. He will be very greatly missed by family and friends alike. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St. Vincent de Paul at Holy Cross Catholic Church.
