LeRoy Lewis Tallada Sr.

August 3, 1940 – February 7, 2020

On February 7, 2020, LeRoy was reunited in Heaven with his wife, Sharon, mother

Annetta, and brother Freddie after a long battle with prostate cancer.


He is survived by his sister, Edith, and his four sons, LeRoy Jr. (Connie Headley), Dwayne Sr., Scott (Laurel Tallada), and Biff (Frances Tallada).  He also leaves behind 11 grandchildren: Nic, Molly, Arianna, Zoë, Kaitlynn, Dwayne Jr., William, AJ, Julianna, Antonio and Emma, as well as several great grandchildren.

In addition to his service in the US Army, LeRoy dedicated many years of his life to serving his community as a volunteer Firefighter.  As an avid outdoorsman, he passed on his love for camping, fishing, and hunting to his sons.

LeRoy was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

So, as “Big Roy” would always say, “I’m going fishing and bye for now.”


In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to be made to cancer research.
