    I was saddened to hear of LeRoy's passing. Our condolences to you Bobbi and your family. When we were in Gold Canyon, living on Canyon Wren, we met LeRoy as he was recommended to us as someone we could count on to look after our property when we were back in Canada during the summer. What a wonderful obliging man he helpful, so friendly and so willing to do the "extra" things that needed doing when you own a property but are only there for 6 months of the year. Nothing but the best of memories for you LeRoy!

    Dear Bobbi,
    We are saddened to hear of Leroys passing. What a wonderful friend he was to so many here in Mountainbrook. When you moved back to MN it was a loss to all of us but it it was time to be close to your family. Thank you Bobbi for opening your welcoming arms to us when we moved on Canyon Wren. You & Leroy were the first people we met with much in common being from Blaine, MN. May you find peace & comfort knowing that Leroy is with his Lord. God bless you Bobbi.

    LeRoy will be sadly missed especially those in Mountainbrook, Gold Canyon, AZ. A man of many talents when taking care of the many homes he watched in the absence of us snowbirds. He was a good friend and loved discussing politics and Fox News with him. Will miss him greatly.
