XENIA — LeRoy Herrman age 78, passed away Monday March 3, 2014 in Dayton, Ohio. LeRoy was born September 29, 1935 in Liebenthal, Kansas the son of the late Raymond and Lucy (Steckline) Herrman. LeRoy is survived by his wife Donna Herrman; daughter: Susan Jozwiak (Steve); sons: Michael J Herrman (Michelle) and Matthew C Herrman (Lorie); sister: LuElla Bieker (Clarence); brothers: Raymond J. Herrman Jr. (Katie) and Vernon Herrman (Dorothy); and his grandchildren: Hayley, Ellen, Joseph Jozwiak, James and Joshua Herrman, Clair and Grace Herrman. LeRoy served his country proudly in the United States Air Force. Leroy's love of flying started when he saw military planes fly over the family farm in western Kansas. He was able to turn that childhood passion into a career and was fortunate to fly for over 40 years. He had two distinctly different careers. Lee served as an Air Force fighter pilot serving in the Vietnam era logging many combat missions. He flew the F-86, F-100, F-105, F-4 and A-7. After retiring from the Air Force he started a second career in civilian aviation as a demo pilot for Cessna Aircraft flying many different aircrafts, including the Cessna Citation X. LeRoy was a member of the Red River Valley Fighter Pilot Association, Super Sabre Society, and the St. Luke Catholic Church in Beavercreek, Ohio. LeRoy's family and friends are sad to say good-bye but take comfort that LeRoy lived a full life and blesses the people that were fortunate enough to know him. Memorial services will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family. Services are in care of McColaugh Funeral Home, Inc., 826 N. Detroit St., Xenia.
