Leroy will be missed but never forgotten. The area business guys refer to Leroy as "The Mayor of 8th Street". Pretty fitting... As the young lady who took over his shop, I'm humbled, greatful and honored to have had this amazing opportunity to buy his Barbershop in May 2012 after he retired. He wasn't crazy about the idea at first, until I told him I was a barber and promised not to put pink curtains in his shop. But our friendship grew fast and strong handshakes turned into back breaking bear hugs. Lots of wisdom and free advice was shared and encouraged clients came in to give me a try, for this was there home too for many years. The Barbering industry lost a wonderful barber, we all lost a wonderful barber and friend. God Bless you Leroy...May you be an inspiration to us all to be better people, you lived your life to the fullest. It's been so hard walking into that barbershop everyday, seeing familiar faces and friends we shared, but know how much you were loved, admired, and will be missed. Although saddened since I heard the news and attended your service, it comforts me knowing you had the last say, and was ready to go. I've mourned you this last week..Now it's time I celebrate and remember you for who you were and promise to carry on the clippers, and haircuts and keep your memory alive best behind the chair. The best advice you gave to me was "kiddo, due your best, you can't make a silk purse out of a pig's ear" and "haircuts can wait but family comes first, enjoy your children they're keeper's"...wise man and you'll be missed. To Leroy's family...he was the best...words can't be written, or expressed exactly right now, but our deepest sympathy goes out to you all, and we'll see you again soon because we're family, thanks to Leroy, an opportunity, and believing in me. God Bless.
