Leroy Curtis Lillard, 70, of Garden City Beach, SC and formerly of Front Royal, passed away Friday, April 26, 2019 with his loving wife and best friend of 50 years, Becky, by his side.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Maddox Funeral Home with Sammy Campbell officiating. The family will receive friends from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday.

At a later date, Leroy's ashes will be scattered in places that held a special meaning for him.

Leroy was born December 11, 1948 in Front Royal, VA, son of the late Robert H. Lillard Sr. and Julia Katherine (Pullen) Lillard.

He was also preceded in death by his brother, Bobby Lillard; Bobby's wife, Doris; and a very special uncle, J.T. Pullen.

Leroy was a barber by trade. He and his brother, Buddy, co-owned and operated Buddy and Leroy's Barber Shop for many years.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Front Royal, VA and was also a member of Sons of the American Legion Post 53 and Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge 829 in Front Royal.

In addition to his wife, Becky, he is survived by his loving son, Stevie Lillard; his precious grandchildren, Cody, Jordan, and Joshua Lillard; great-granddaughter, Piper; his brother, Buddy Lillard (Brenda); brother-in-law, Randy Ramey (Ann); nephews, Ricky Lillard and Chad Ramey; and nieces, Donna Cameron, Lisa Starnes, and Sarah Ramey.

Leroy's sense of humor and his ability to have comfortable and entertaining conversations with strangers and friends alike made him a person few will ever forget. He will be remembered for making people smile (or laugh out loud) and for having them feel happy in his presence.

He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

In honor of Leroy's love of white t-shirts, feel free to join the family in wearing your favorite white shirt.
