Mr. Leroy Canady was born February 14th, 1942, in Center Ridge, Arkansas to Diversa Bell-Clinkscale and James Roger Canady. Raised by Rubin Payne (father) who taught him to be a man, the value of work hard, and to respect everyone. All three parents preceded him in death. He was the eldest of three siblings; one preceded him in death (Narvel Payne).
Leroy enjoyed ALL things cars; whether it was racing one, fixing one, or helping some else find one. He was a people person- always smiling, socializing, singing, and humming. He was a good-natured jokester that would do anything to make others smile. He was a huge wrestling fan. Leroy was a longtime employee of Pepsi Cola having worked there for 30 years upon his retirement in 2004.
Leroy accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour and loved his church home Graceway Church of which he was a member since 1988. He was active member of the church and Way of Life Sunday school class.
