LeRoy and Claudette Marie May were united in marriage on November 11, 1967 in Grand Junction. The couple lived in an apartment in Jefferson, then built their new home in 1976 with the help of Claudette’s father, Art May, and her brothers. They were blessed with a daughter, Jennifer, and son, Jason. LeRoy worked for Quad States for 20 years and Hoffman Construction for 19 years constructing concrete grain silos and steel grain bins. He retired in 2014. Every Labor Day for the past eight years, family would arrive with their campers in tow for “Lee Fest” to grill, stay up late and have fun! LeRoy liked watching John Wayne movies and Larry The Cable Guy. He collected logo hats and pendulum clocks. LeRoy and Vinnie Monahan grew tomatoes and made salsas, sauerkraut, juice and pickled beets. Friends were always stopping by the garage for cards or just to visit.
