LeRoy John Hugo was born on July 13, 1927 in Thompson, Iowa, the second of eight children born to Tjark and May (Walkner) Hugo.
He attended school at Mason City, and went on to serve his country as an Army medic in Brazil. After his tour of duty he worked various jobs until he found his niche as a brake operator and trouble shooter for Curries. He worked there for 30 years until retiring in 1993. LeRoy also worked carpentry jobs with his brothers, John and Gunther.
LeRoy was united in marriage to Marcella Toinbee in 1945. From their marriage they had three daughters, Connie, Bette, and Pam.
