Leroy grew up on Trace Fork of Irishman Creek at Amburgey, Kentucky where he spent most of his life.
Leroy’s passion for animals stayed with him throughout his life. Even after he became ill he still loved to dabble
in cattle, goats, pigs and chickens that he loved.
Leroy was a husband, a father, a brother, an uncle and a friend, but more important than that, he was a
compassionate man. His love and generosity was spread throughout his community. With his hard work, vision,
and dedication, he developed one of the state’s premier ambulance services-virtually from scratch-for the people
of Perry County. His knowledge and experience was also instrumental in the formation and developing of other
emergency medical services for other communities.
Leroy was a farmer, a rancher, a former ARH employee, a former Knott County Magistrate, and former
director of the Perry County Ambulance Service.
Leroy was also fair and open-minded. He was always on the side of anyone who was willing to give an
effort. Leroy, we will miss you, but we will never forget you. You have left this world of pain to enter a place of
no pain or sickness. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.
