Being a Casselberry resident, I had the honor and pleasure to meet and become friends with Leroy. We shared the same passion for football and gambling. What most impressed me, was how big Leroy’s heart was. Leroy cared for the homeless, kind to everyone and always had a big smile.. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. He will be sorely missed.
