  1. I met Jerry Leggett in the 1940 era and he was an icon then. Beautifully maintained farm, driving a milk truck, and tending cemetery areas for chuch, he was a person to emulate. The world would ever so much better with more like him, and others I knew while growing up in Stock Township, Harrison County. Now 82, retired from military career, I live in Colorado but Jerry will be remembered by many.
