LeRoy G. Garms, Jr. was born on February 2, 1941, in Windom, Minnesota to the late LeRoy H. and Alma (Dunse) Garms, Sr. He was baptized and confirmed at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Windom.

LeRoy received his education in the Mountain Lake Public Schools; graduating in the Class of 1959. He attended Worthington Community College where he received an Associate Degree in accounting.

On October 1, 1966, Janice was united in marriage to LeRoy Garms at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Jackson. This union was blessed with two children, Glen and LeAnn. They were blessed with three grandchildren, Elizabeth, Adam and BreAnna. LeRoy worked for many years at Caldwell Packing in Windom and then at Swift in Worthington from 1988 until his retirement in 2002. In 2003, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and fought the disease courageously until passing away on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, at the Good Samaritan Society-Sogge Memorial in Windom at the age of 78 years.

LeRoy was a longtime, faithful member of the Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Windom where he was a member of the Men’s Bible study group and a former member of the Living Word Lutheran Church in Windom. He also was a member of the Bald Eagles Club in Windom. LeRoy enjoyed sports, especially watching the Minnesota Gophers football and basketball teams, listening to polka music on TV, and spending time with his family; especially his grandchildren.
