Leroy and I baked bread every Friday evening for many years. As I told Deb earlier, it was a great pleasure to work with Leroy, share a "good" beer at break time and above all enjoy his friendship. Both he and Corinne showed kindness to me and my family. And they taught me to make good bread and run a bakery which I did, some of the best times in my life.

Uncle Leroy was smart, generous, and a great cook. I remember the pizza parties in the 1960s that he and Corrinne had regularly--he made all the pizzas!

Lee was my major professor during my graduate training. He guided me to my current professional career. He was also my friend and my father figure. He was very good to me. I will miss him.
