April 25,1961-June 6, 2015
Founding Member of Florida Chapter 444
Served as Chapter President
Leca loved her family, her friends and riding her Harley. She not only founded Florida Chapter 444 but was instrumental in helping start 3 additional AMVETS Riders Chapters in the North Central Florida area. She was a very active member of her Ladies Auxiliary and served as President of FL444 Riders from May 22, 2010 until the time of her death. She is sorely missed by her husband Donald, mother and stepfather, a son and two daughters and 10 grandchildren. Leca’s passion for riding, dedication to her friends and family, and love for all are just a few of the reasons why she holds a special place in our hearts.

Charter Member of Ohio 76
Branch of Service: Navy, Vietnam Veteran
Past 2nd Vice President
Rusty was a founding member of his chapter. He was a person you would never forget if you met him, and he made an impact on everyone’s lives. He lived his life to the fullest. Rusty would do anything for anyone even if he didn’t know you well, and he will be greatly missed.
The AMVETS Riders would like to honor all those faithful Riders who have passed from this life to the next. Their voices and the the roar of their motorcycles have been stilled, but their names and faces are indelibly etched in our hearts and minds. Their passing has left a void that will never be filled, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to serve and ride alongside them. We were blessed to know them, and we pray that God will bless us to be reunited when it is our time to take the final ride. Now as they ride forever free across the heavens, these AMVETS Riders are part of an eternal fellowship,
