After 40 plus years as my tenor singing partner at Nakina Baptist Church I am going to miss Leroy greatly. We had a fun time praising the Lord in word and song. I am positive he is singing in the Lord's choir now.

I was so shocked to hear about Coach. He was a great role model. I enjoyed having him as a teacher and riding the bus back after games. If we won and the boys lost no one said a word. Later after I started teaching and coaching he came to our games on the way to the state playoffs. His support was so special. I am praying for all of your family members.

Mrs. Ward,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Ward. He was so special to me. I fondly remember all the days at Nakina as a student and athlete, and afterward when he was my mentor at the beginning of my first principalship. He was so proud of his students and all their accomplishments. He was professional, supportive, and kind. He was the type of educator and role model that our students so desperately need today. He will never know the the overwhelming impact of his days working in the Columbus County School System and the number of lives he has touched in such a positive manner. His love and genuine respect for all those he encountered will always be remembered by me and many, many others. You and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
