In Loving Memory

LeCroy, Milton Thomas

January 11, 1944 - December 4, 2023

Milton Thomas LeCroy (Milt/Tom) was born in 1944 in Hopewell, Virginia, to Jack Thomas LeCroy and Evelyn Hamon LeCroy. In the early days of his childhood, Milton, and his mother (she often called him Tommy) stayed with his Grandma Hamon as it was wartime, and the men of his family were in service. The women in their household, style conscious and gifted with their needle work, made do with what they had, and enjoyed dressing him in handcrafted garments including hats. Through these good people, Milt gained experiences from which he acquired lifetime values. It was there, surrounded by the love of his aunts, uncles, mother, and grandmother that he developed an inquisitive mind, a kind heart, and an innovative spirit which provided the foundation upon which he lived.

He was Baptized in infancy in the Presbyterian Church and taught Christian principles by his Presbyterian mother and grandmother. As he grew, he attended various churches with family and friends. Later, as a young adult, he made his profession of faith and chose to be Baptized by a non-denominational pastor. In his pre-teen years, Milt moved to the St. Louis region with his mother and stepfather. He continued to develop his reading and listening skills, his lifelong love for all sports, a sense of humor, an inquisitive mind, and the belief that all persons have value. He often returned to his old neighborhood during which times he recalled humorous stories of his adventures with his friends. He felt very much at home in St. Louis and was proud to be a St. Louisan.

Milt was a snappy dresser; an early riser throughout his life, he was often outside in the early mornings feeding the birds after which, he would sit quietly in thought, gazing at the horizon. He was usually wearing one of his many flat caps- herringbone tweeds, Cairns, plaids; he had many. This, too, was a habit he acquired in early childhood.  He, also, loved books; he bought them, borrowed them, often read 2-3 within the same sitting, left them behind in outer offices, on desktops, searched for those out of publication, and matched persons to the books he was gifting. He especially respected motivational writers and speakers who sought to inspire others to overcome challenges to achieve goals. Rarely was an author or speaker mentioned, of which he was not knowledgeable.

In the early morning of December 3, 2023, Milt passed from this life and left behind family, many friends, and neighbors: Pat and their sons Benjamin (Abby) and Jonathan (Stacie), two grandsons, four granddaughters, half-sisters Sherry, Becky, and Pam, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews and nieces, Howard Danzig and his ECCHIC Team, neighbors, and shopkeepers. He was preceded in death by his much-loved Grandma Hamon, mother Evelyn, stepfather James Radcliff, his father Jack LeCroy and stepmother Mardene LeCroy, two half-brothers Randy and Kyle LeCroy, sister-in-law Mary Lou McKinney, and brothers-in-law Kenneth and Paul Plaster, Dewey Horton, Charlie McKinney, and Gregory Knauff.
