January 15, 1949 ~ June 8, 2022 (age 73)


POLAND - David T. McLeroy (Dave), 73, passed away Wednesday June 8th, 2022.  

David was born January 15, 1949 in Bremen Alabama to John Paul McLeroy and Berla Ralph. 

He graduated from Highland High School and went on to earn a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University. 

David was President and owner of Geneva-Liberty Steel and former owner of Geneva Steel located in Youngstown. 

David was a passionate golfer and business leader who loved all things Put-In-Bay, boating and time with his pets.  His love for golf meant 6:00 am T-times before work and many family, friend and business golf outings.   His love of all things Put-In-Bay led to a built-in bar that was a wonderful addition to his annual independence day celebrations with our friends from Nashville.  David always looked for opportunities to use his bow-thruster to captain his boat to Put-In-Bay and back with family and friends.   

He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Barb McLeroy, his brother-in-law and close friend Steve Starynchak and his children, Denny Bernier & wife Catalina of Leesburg Virginia, Donald Bernier & wife Kim of Poland Ohio, Doug Bernier & wife Christina of Powell Ohio, David McLeroy & his wife Jennifer of Greenwich Connecticut and Cindy Ricciuti-Brown & husband Kent of Roseville California.  

He is also survived by 10 grandchildren, Ashley, Shelby, Samantha, Madison, Evan, Emma, Eliana, Edmond, Christian and Aviana.    

Calling hours will be held Friday, June 10, 2022 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm Friday June 10, 2022 at the Higgins-Reardon Funeral Homes, Poland Chapel. 

Funeral services will be held Saturday at 10 am at the funeral home.
