LeRoy died of pancreatic cancer. When LeRoy Berlinghoff went to work for Clearwater Lumber in Lewiston, Idaho, in 1926 he had to write down his middle name of which he did not have. So he changed his name to "Roy Lee Berlinghoff" and went by that name for the rest of his life.

This is the reason his headstone reads, "Roy Lee Berlinghoff" instead of "LeRoy Berlinghoff".
