78, passed away on Saturday, December 12, 2015, with his beloved wife Sharon and sons Ronald and Greg by his side. LeRoy was born in Bell, California, to his deceased parents Charles and Dorothy Donnally. He moved to Phoenix, Arizona, in 1950 and attended Phoenix Union High School, Phoenix College and the University of Arizona where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He got a mechanical engineering degree and used his talents at ITT Cannon Electric and Motorola where he worked for 31 years. It was at the University of Arizona that he met Sharon and later married her after serving in the United States Air Force Reserve. They have been married for 53 years, and he was a pushover and doting grandfather to Ronald and Stephanie’s children, Hudson and Grier. He passed his passion of fishing to Ronald and Greg so they could enjoy the streams and lakes of Greer, Arizona, and the ocean waters in his boat captained by Greg and enjoyed by Greg’s girlfriend, Christina Jones in Cabo San Lucas. He passed his love of fly fishing on to Hudson and Grier where he and Sharon would take them to their vacation home in Greer, Arizona. During his retirement LeRoy loved being a part of the Arizona Flycasters helping with their charitable causes. LeRoy was a loving husband, father and grandfather who will be loved and greatly missed forever.
