Leo Latham, or better known as GRANDAD, went to Heaven on Friday, March 17, 2017, just four days short of his 89th birthday, to be with his loving wife, Virgie Latham, and son, Charles Latham.

He is survived by his three daughters, Janet Roe and LaNell Kruger both of Wichita Falls, and Lisa McPherson and husband Russell of Cypress; his grandchildren, Danielle Roe and fiancé James Chandler, who Leo had adopted as his own grandson, and Ryan Roe all of Wichita Falls, Caden Burross and wife Alison of Austin, Art Naylor of San Marcos, Matthew McPherson of Cypress; and his great-grandchildren, Brooklyn Chandler of Wichita Falls, and Josie Peach Burross and Fiona Lou Burross both of Austin.

The doors were never locked at his place. It was like an open house. He was salty like the waters he sailed as a sailor in his teens but he broke his back for his family more times than one could count. His granddaughter, Danielle, and grandson, Ryan, mentioned that the greatest parts of their lives were spent there, in the “house that built them” with their Grandad and Granny. They said he always had funny jokes and quotes on Facebook and mentioned how many 88 year olds even use Facebook. There was never a dull moment around him and we were so blessed to have him residing in Danielle’s house with his family by his side in his last days.

Leo will be deeply missed here on Earth, but welcomed with open arms into Heaven from our Mother and our Brother. Everyone who knew him loved him…he was the strongest and most unselfish man we have ever known.
