LeRoy Arthur Leverone, 87, of North Beach after living a long and very full life passed away with his boots on February 5, 2018. He is survived by his loving family: son Michael F. Leverone (Susan) of Reading, MA, daughter Theresa Henderson (Steve) of Greenbelt, MD, grandchildren Julia Leverone (Edgar Murillo) of Dallas, TX, Patrick Leverone of Reading, MA, Madeline Henderson and Steven Henderson, both of Greenbelt. He was preceded in death by his sister Barbara Leverone, his wife of 65 years Carolyn Leverone and sons Mark, Brian and Joseph Leverone.
He was born in Washington, D.C. on April 1, 1930 and raised in Mt. Rainier, MD. He graduated from Mt. Rainier High School. LeRoy was an accomplished carpenter and home builder. During his first career, LeRoy built approximately 150 homes in Prince George's County, as well as his own fourth and final home in North Beach. When home building declined in the 1970's, LeRoy started his next career as a Charter Boat Captain on the Chesapeake Bay. He started out with the Miss Teresa, a clam boat that he converted to a family boat able to sleep seven and then to a charter fishing boat. He then moved up to the Puddin II, a charter boat that was licensed for over six, and finally got his own boat made in Crisfield, which he named the Uncle Roy.
He retired from charter fishing in 2011, except as an occasional "captain for hire" which he continued to do until his death. During his part-time retirement, he delved into more woodworking projects and made some beautiful furniture, toys and miscellaneous items. A devout Catholic, LeRoy attended St. Anthony's Church in North Beach. LeRoy surely found his place in heaven. Along the way he has built caring relationships with many good neighbors and friends who will all miss him terribly. Arrangements by Rausch Funeral Home.
