Alfred Leslie, 90 years old, of Harris, Missouri, passed away Sunday, April 12, 2020 at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Alfred was born March 7, 1930 in Milan, Missouri to Amos and Marjorie (McAlister) Leslie.
On May 24, 1958 he married Mildred “Jean” Leslie; she preceded him in death on March 24, 2016.
Survivors include: one daughter, Sabrina Leslie-Strømnes of Timnath, Colorado; two grandchildren, Nikki Rivera and Vanden Muhler; two great grandchildren, Zaya Rivera and Zoey Rivera; and several nieces and nephews. He was also preceded in death by a sister, Cleta Pickering and a brother, Clayton Leslie.
Alfred grew up in Sullivan County graduating from Milan C-II High School. He worked at General Motors in Kansas City, then transferred to GM in Denver, Colorado and retired in 1987. Alfred and Jean then moved back to Missouri and kept a small home in Colorado so they could spend time with family in both places. They often spent time in Arizona in the winter.
Alfred and Jean were kind and giving people. They often opened their home to family and friends who were moving to the area or just needed a place to stay for a while. They even hosted an exchange student from Finland in 1986. Always on the go, they spent a lot of time in the mountains, riding dirt bikes on trails in the national forest, 4 wheeling, camping, fishing, water skiing and taking family vacations. One of Alfred’s favorite things to do was elk hunting in the mountains. He also liked to buy and sell things, especially cars.
Alfred was buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Milan.
A memorial service will be held 2:00 PM, Saturday, May 29, 2021 at Schoene- Ruschmeier Funeral Home in Milan.
