LeRoy was well-known in Sheboygan, for his gift of growing superb vegetables. Together with his uncle, Peter Kaat, they grew produce for the local supermarkets as well as for private residents. LeRoy taught his children great work ethic, by involving them in the family business.
LeRoy was enthusiastic for life and loved the great outdoors, which included tending to his well-stocked pond, fishing and hunting.
