Milliken mourns passing of Leroy Martinez
Editor's Note: We were saddened to learn of the death of Leroy Martinez. In his memory, we are re-running this profile that was published in August when Leroy was honored as the Grand Marshall for the Milliken Beef 'N Bean Day parade. Our condolences to his wife, Hilda, their family, and the many friends (which we number ourselves among) that Leroy had.
He will be missed.
