By now, many of you have heard that on Monday, October 11, Sumner lost Leroy Goff. Leroy was one of a kind and I’m honored and blessed to have known and worked with him. There are almost too many stories to share about Leroy. What I want to talk about is his legacy of getting the most out of life and public service.

Everyone knows that Leroy did just about everything in town from driving the Kenworth through parades to hanging lights at the holidays to being a leader in Sumner’s Relay for Life. The thing is, he didn’t do it because he felt he had to or should. He did it because he loved it. He loved people, and he loved this city. He did not fear change and embraced progress. This is a man who went from working a paper route in 1939 to save money for a bicycle to riding Harleys to riding his tricycle only a few weeks ago around town…complete with helmet. He didn’t let anything stop him from trying something new or adapting his ways to keep doing the things he loved. And you can see how that transferred over to his service in City government. He was one of the first to be interested in new ideas and new ways of doing city work. He had his definite opinions about things, that’s for sure, but he always wanted to know more before he made up his mind, and that made all the difference.

We’ll all miss “Mr. Sumner” for so many reasons. When I think about his legacy, I don’t think about a building or a project. I always think about the man walking or riding his bike through Sumner, waving to everyone!
