LeRoy proudly served his community by owning and operating The Pioneer Lounge where family and friends gathered for numerous celebrations.

After retiring from the catering business, LeRoy was a grounds keeper at the Monument Shadows Golf Course in Gering. He enjoyed many other hobbies that included hunting, fishing, racing and following the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He was the proud founder of the Buzzards Nor-Can Expeditions, a group of friends and family that went on an annual fishing adventure to the Northwest Territories of Canada.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Bonnie of Scottsbluff; sons Jay (Pat) Weitzel of Scottsbluff, NE and Corey (Kelly) Weitzel of Bellevue, NE; Jennifer Weitzel of Dayton, OH; sister Darlene (Randy) Wickard of Scottsbluff, NE; sister-in-law Lucille Weitzel of Boise, ID; grandchildren Morgan (Mike Kiefer) Weitzel, Aaron Weitzel, Kyle Weitzel, Jordyn Tollefson and Taylor Tollefson; aunt Gloria Hartwig, mother-in-law Betty Beals; brothers-in-law Dennis (Diane) Beals, Gary (Sandy) Beals, Doug (Lori) Beals, Rob Beals; and numerous nieces and nephews.
