He loved to hunt and especially fish. He had been on a trap team in Revere with neighborhood guys. When the boys were young he was a Boy Scout leader with Bill Hufford.
He was an excellent woodworker.

Leroy was very family and community minded. He was a member of the Revere Fire Department and in 1993 the Christy family was instrumental in organizing meals and fund raisers for the St. Francisville Community Center and Leroy was generally there with a friendly smile and sometimes with a dish towel in his hand. He cared about what was going on and he and Wyrene did whatever they could to support it by their attendance and also the many activities their kids and grandkids were involved in. They were rarely seen without the other and he always made sure even though he didn’t ride, that Wyrene made it to many parades so she could be a part of it. He was a good friend to all he met.
