LeRoy C. Laine, Jr. of Williams, Ariz. was born April 13, 1946 in San Diego, Calif. He passed away November 20, 2012 in Williams, Ariz.

LeRoy, retired full-time U.S. Army Reservist, served as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.

He was awarded the Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts for his extraordinary service in Vietnam.

LeRoy graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a Bachelor of Professional Aeronautics. He spent most of his military career in Germany with assignments in the U.S.

He was a retired federal government employee stationed in Germany and was a lifetime member of VFW Post 9845 in Heidelberg, Germany.

LeRoy is survived by his partner and companion Mary Kasel, Williams, Ariz, son Derek and his wife Sylke of Missoula, Mont., brother Michael and his wife Caroline of Grindelwald, Switzerland, and father Dusty and his wife Jane of Mesa, Ariz.

He is preceded in death by his mother Mary Lou (Baker) Laine.

A Celebration of LeRoy's Life is planned for April 13, 2013 at a location yet to be determined and will include honoring his military service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in LeRoy's name to non-profit organizations which benefit injured or disabled veterans including military working dogs.

LeRoy and I worked together in Germany, and kept in occasional contact since then. Please let me know plans for the celebration of his life, or pass my request to someone who can. Thanks.
