Sorry to learn of Leroy's passing, I'll always remember seeing him coming down the road on his tractor with that big snowblower on it ready to dig us out and his sister next door. One vivid memory was when I took him and our wives I think (could have been two of our kids) on an airplane ride out of Ashland airport on a tour of the area. We were right at the limit of the MTGW (max takeoff gross weight) but we made it and enjoyed a fun day. RIP LEROY.
