Resident Highlight – Leroy DeMar
Leroy was born not far from Chicago, where he lived with his parents, 2 sisters, and 2 half-sisters. When he was about 9, they moved to Otsego, Michigan where he graduated from High School. After graduating, he took some Accounting Courses at KVCC the first year that it was built. “Colleges were a lot smaller back in those days.” He got his first job at a mom and pop restaurant called Satellites, working there for 8 years in a management position. After the owners sold their business, he found a job at a Plastics Factory in Plainwell. He has 2 nieces and 2 nephews, but never had any children of his own. He really enjoys sports, but really likes the Chicago Cubs. He has been able to make it to Wrigley Field a couple times to watch some games. When he was younger he enjoyed golfing and tennis, and he is really proud of his old red Corvette.
