LeRoy Belcher

LeRoy Belcher, 76, Texas Tech alum, of Pettit,  passed away January 29, 2020, in Albuquerque following a sudden illness. 
He was born in San Pedro, California, October 4, 1943.
LeRoy is survived by a large and loving family, a daughter and two grandsons of Taos, New Mexico, and two older brothers, Bobby, of Lubbock and Jerry, of Temple.
He  was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Marvin Belcher and Annie Onita Belcher of Pettit, where he grew up; and by his younger brother, Donald Lee Belcher of Big Spring,  where Roy headed the office of Jackson-Hewitt for a time. 
LeRoy will be remembered by a multitude of co-workers in the oil and gas business from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and across the world who loved him for his generosity and guidance. 
He sat on the board of directors of Amarex, Inc. where he was Executive Vice President and was head of the GMBH of that Company in Munich, Germany until the company closed. 
In his younger years, LeRoy worked as CPA for Arthur Andersen Company in Fort Worth and was instrumental in setting up the first computer systems for Maremont Corporation in Chicago, where he became Head of their Western Division, at age 25. 
LeRoy never met a stranger, greeting everyone he met; he was modest and generous to a fault.
He retired in Taos during his later years where he loved to walk to the library every day and was know around town as ‘the walking man.’ 
“Be happy and enjoy the day,” was his motto, and he will be remembered as one who brought joy to others.
