He graduated from Motley High School with the class of 1959 and furthered his education at the University of Minnesota- St. Paul Campus.

Upon his return he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Janet Jordahl on January 6, 1963 in Frazee, MN. The couple raised three children and hosted an exchange student from Denmark.

He was also a member of the American Legion Post #124 and served on the Motley City Council for 10 years. Leroy was thankful to his little sister, Mary and his brother-in-law, Ed for donating a kidney to him. He loved to hunt, cook, and eat a great meal. He enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Leroy was a gentle caring man and a leader in his community.

Leroy is survived by his loving wife Janet Greig of Motley, MN; children, Kari (John) Carlson of Rapid City, SD, James Greig of Motley, MN, Todd (Lisa) Greig of Sheridan, WY; exchange student, Kim (Pia) Christensen of Nibe, Denmark; 2 sisters; 1 brother; 6 grandchildren; and 2 great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents; brother-in-law, Donn Peck; and nephew, Jeffrey Fahnlander.
