Sorry for the family's loss. Leroy was always the same whether you met him as a deputy in court or saw him around Greenville, he treated the inmates he escorted the same as the person on the street.

Remembering my brother-in-law, Kilroy. I will always remember him as a kind man whose devotion to his family knew no bounds. May his soul be at peace. He will never be forgotten.

Kilroy probably had as many friends over the years as any Muhlenberg Countian. He was a lot of fun to be around and was well versed in just about any subject. He will most certainly be missed. Prayers and condolences to his family and many friends.

I was saddened to hear of Leroy’s passing. He and I worked together when I was sheriff. He was dedicated to his job but most importantly was dedicated to people. He had a servants heart and everyone that knew him was better off for it. I will miss our talks and his presence in our community. Sincerely Curtis McGehee

Always a great man and a great friend no matter where he seen you will never forget his gentle nature and how kind he always was to me . When I worked at the shell gas station in Greenville he always came in and checked on us to make sure we are all ok and that’s where I met Leroy and his daughter lisa wells and we have been friends for years now and this saddens me of his death but so glad our paths crossed and I got to know Leroy and his kind heart . Always a friend always never forgotten , rest in peace my sweet friend and god bless you . Love ya!
