LeRoy was my first boss with the Forest Service in 1972 until he retired and I adored him. He was always so supportive and encouraging. I LOVED the cute things his Grandkids had to say. He was so proud of his kids and Grandkids...a man of honor. Sending prayers to his beautiful family.

Sending my thoughts and prayers to the Kintner family. Leroy was my first boss, as the head of "Drafting" at the US Forest Service. Leroy was a great boss, and I've always appreciated his encouragement and assistance early in my career.
