A large number of friends and neighbors were in attendance and Fisher Post, American Legion, attended in a body to pay tribute to another young war ihero who had given his life in service to his country. Dr. Nelson, acting pastor for Immanuel Lutheran church, gave the memorial sermon and obituary, using as his text I John 1-3: "That which we have seen and heard declare We unto you that ye also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his son Jesus Christ." Dr. Nelron stated that he had chosen this particular text because of the content of the last letter LeRoy had written home, in which he had said, "I know God is with me and will bring me safely home; and I know I can find peace and comfort with him." The letter was written Dec. 31, 1944. LeRoy was killed in battle Jan; 3, 1945. LeRoy was a veteran of the 92nd glider division. He was wounded last September when his division fought its way out of a trap at Aachen when it attempted to establish a bridge head. It received the presidential citation for its successful attempt in fighting its way back to American lines. LeRoy was s born at Orient, S. D., Oct. 29, 1923, to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Peterson. His mother died when ihe was 7 and he, together with a brother and two sisters came to live with his aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. David An- derson, in Harrisott., township, where he was given a IfoM home, an education, and a firm belief in the Lutheran laHlm He' was baptized Dec. 9, 1923, and was confirmed in the Immahuel Lutheran church June 8, 1939.
