  1. We wish express our most sincere sympathy to each of you. Our thoughts and prayer are with you. Rest In Peace Dear Leroy. You have set a wonderful example for your Dear family. With Sincere Love and Prayers to you all. Love from the Schiermeister’s Leo and DOrinda.

  2. We join with you in your sadness over the passing of LeRoy. Such a great guy, a person who was a lot of fun to be around. The real quality in LeRoy, though, is shown in the values he passed on to not only his kids, but grandkids, too. Qualities such as devotion to family, devotion to community, hard work, love of God and love of other people. Kelly is our son-in-law, and we see all those values in Kelly and our joint grandkids, Mason and Madison. That’s a fantastic legacy for LeRoy. God bless. — Rob and Carla Lein

  10. My Memories of LeRoy are of all the Deer Hunting our family did around the area. When ever we would stop on the road and chat w LeRoy and Tory, it was always an enjoyable part of the Hunt and something to look forward to. The respect my Dad and LeRoy had for each other was evident. The “knowledge” we gained on those road side meetings, I am sure Tory and my brothers would agree were pretty profound!! Here’s to the Old Timers!!
