LeeRoy Leifeste was a wonderful man and true friend. He led an extraordinary life. Elizabeth and I are thankful to have known him for nearly 40 years. We love your family and are praying for you. May God bless and comfort you at this time as you cherish the memories. You all have an awesome family legacy and heritage. I love this photo, makes one assume he was a prankster and a bit mischievous as a boy.
