LeRoy was born June 20, 1945, in Salisbury at Peninsula Regional Medical Center to Percy and Florence White of Princess Anne. He attended Washington High School in Princess Anne. He then went on to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War as an aircraft maintenance specialist. He was honorably discharged on Oct. 1, 1968. Afterwards, he began to work on his family's farm as well as selling real estate in the Tri-County area. He began working for the state of Maryland as a correctional supply officer in 1989, before retiring in 2009.
LeRoy thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his family, playing solitaire, watching his children play sports, traveling across the United States to see all the natural wonders as well as the National Parks, watching football and checking his stocks twice a day on the family computer that he said we didn't need.
In addition to his loving wife, Dee, he is survived by his three children, Dawn, Andy and Sean; two grandchildren; his sister Peggy Jean Sharpless; and several nieces and nephews.
