LeRoy Henry, son of Henry and Jennie (Stadtlander) Goeman, was born on October 15, 1942 at the Belmond Hospital. LeRoy spent his early years growing up on the family farm east of Belmond. At 10 years old he moved into town and finished school.

On July 6, 1962, LeRoy was united in marriage to Shirley Wessels at Bethany Reformed Church in Belmond. The couple made their home on the family farm east of Belmond where they raised their three children. LeRoy farmed with Shirley’s father, William Wessels, for a few years before working at Winnebago Trailers and later National By-Products for 25 years. LeRoy retired from Golden Harvest Seeds in 2005.

LeRoy loved attending auctions, visiting farm shows, collecting antiques, driving old farm tractors and purchasing farm toys. In his spare time, LeRoy enjoyed painting ceramics for family and friends. They traveled around the United States on bus tours and visited many great attractions.

LeRoy enjoyed a good chat with anyone, even a stranger. He was often seen having coffee at True Value with friends. Church was a big part of his life. He was a Deacon and an Elder at Bethany Reformed Church and was a member at Immanuel Reformed Church. LeRoy also served on the Retirement Center board for around ten years.
