Whereas, Mr. McLeod and his late wife, Shirley Jean Jeffries, were the proud parents of four children; and
Whereas, he served his country with great distinction and honor as a member of the United States Army; and
Whereas, from 1964 to 1972, Mr. McLeod managed Morris Funeral Home of Bennettsville which was founded by his grandfather in 1914. He served as owner of this family business from 1972 to 2011; and
