Leroy was an second cousin to me. Leroy has always been a hero of mine. To me, he was someone a little larger than life. He has been one of the people I have looked up to in my life. The world is a better place for him having been in it. It is a little smaller now with him gone. I have many good memories over a lifetime of Leroy, Earl, and Donald as well as his parents, Aunt Alice and Uncle Lee. Those memories remain.
My sincere sympathy and condolences go out to his children and grandchildren. Leroy Bonner was someone to be proud of. I know I was proud to have him be a part of my life.
