LeRoy Nelson Everitt

October 7, 1937 — March 12, 2024

Cheyenne

LeRoy N. Everitt, 86, passed away on March 12, 2024, surrounded by family at Davis Hospice Center in Cheyenne, Wyo.

He was born October 7, 1937, in Elmira, NY to loving parents, Linton and Ruby Everitt.  In 1955, LeRoy enlisted in the United States Air Force.  He valued this service highly and attained the rank of Senior Master Sergeant.  He served in Vietnam and was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal, the Joint Services Commendation Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, and the Vietnam Service Medal among numerous others.  He spent his 26 years on active duty as a USAF surveyor.  He was stationed throughout the world including Japan, Germany, Philippines, Taiwan, and many states throughout the U.S., retiring in Cheyenne, Wyo., in 1982.   He was passionate about surveying, and after retiring from the Air Force worked for the State of Wyoming Department of Transportation Right of Way division.  He retired in 2021 after 35 years of service to the State of Wyoming.

As a young airman stationed at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia, LeRoy met Marilyn Sizemore and later married her on August 4, 1963, at Fuchu Air Station, Tokyo, Japan.  In 1971, they welcomed their son, Lee.  LeRoy was a loving and devoted father.

LeRoy was an active member of Grace United Methodist Church, devoting his time as a Sunday school teacher and serving as treasurer for United Methodist Men. 

LeRoy was a member of both the Cheyenne Shriners Club as a Shrine clown and the Masonic Lodge where he reached the distinguished position of Past Master.

LeRoy was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn Everitt; parents, Linton and Ruby Everitt; brothers, Franklin and Clarence Everitt; and sister, Belle Everitt.

LeRoy is survived by his son, Lee Everitt (Kristen) of Groveland, Fla.; granddaughters, Katheryn Goodrich (Peyton) and Jenna Goodrich of Cheyenne, Wyo.; brothers-in-law, Glenn Sizemore and Ted Sizemore of Ocilla, Ga.; and sister-in-law, Pat Foster (Jack) of Atlanta, Ga.

LeRoy will live on through the memories he created and the hearts he touched. May he rest in peace knowing that he was loved and respected by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
