Following their marriage Leroy worked at Roddis Company and later at the shipyards in Superior. Upon the onset of World War II, Leroy enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving from 1943 to 1945. After his return, he and Marion made their home in Marshfield.

Leroy was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the American Legion 54 as well as a 50-year member of the Brick Layers Union. He enjoyed old tractors and farm machinery. His greatest love was that for his wife, family and friends.
