LeRoy D. Strub (October 22, 1950 ~May 12, 2020). LeRoy was born and raised in Puyallup and graduated from Puyallup High School in 1969. LeRoy married his high school sweetheart Crystal Strub and remained in the Puyallup area.
LeRoy worked as a Milwaukee Railroad Conductor from 1969 – 1979. He then went on to work as a Longshoreman (1979-2016) with Local 23 in Tacoma, WA. LeRoy was a Puyallup Eagle member and enjoyed riding his motorcycle as a member of the Tacoma Trail Cruisers. It was during this time he was a volunteer for the Pierce County Search and Rescue team.
After retirement LeRoy loved spending time with his family. He enjoyed R.V camping, fishing and working in his yard, which was always a source of pride. LeRoy also enjoyed friendships old and new, sharing his stories of his days on the railroad with all who would listen. LeRoy enjoyed reconnecting with classmates from the P.H.S class of 1969. LeRoy could often be found socializing at Bumpy’s, and always enjoyed helping with the Bumpy’s car show.
