Leroy Evins Densmore, Jr., age 73, of Kalamazoo, MI passed away in Massachusetts in the care of his son, Douglas, on December 15, 2016. Leroy was born on September 12, 1943, in Fairfield, Alabama, to Jesse Mae Hanks Densmore and Leroy Evins Densmore, Sr. He moved with his family to Inkster, Michigan at a young age and spent his youth surrounded by the love of his parents and four siblings: Yvette, Charlotte, Mark, and Lisa. He attended Western Michigan University, where he was a member of Alpha Phi Omega fraternity. While at Western he studied theater, pursued his love of painting, and met his first wife, Barbara Robinette. In the following years, Leroy turned his passion for the theater and storytelling to the profession of law, and received his Juris Doctorate from Wayne State University in 1973. After passing the bar, Leroy became the first black Assistant District Attorney in Kalamazoo County. Leroy and Barbara moved to Richland, Michigan and had two children: Douglas Michael and Diana Marie. Later, Leroy married his second wife, Mary Toupalik, and moved to Augusta, Michigan, where they raised his stepson, Matthew Anthony and had two more children: Luke Evins and Katharine Breen. He retired from the prosecutor's office in 2003. He is survived by his siblings, Yvette Robinson, Charlotte Asaka, Mark Densmore, and Lisa Densmore, his children, Matt Toupalik, Douglas Densmore, Diana Stelzmuller, Luke Densmore, and Katharine Densmore and two, soon to be three, blessed Grandchildren, Josh, Zack and Naomi. A private memorial service will be held on Friday, February 3, at 2:30 P.M., at the Church of God Family Worship Center, 5841 East H Avenue in Kalamazoo, MI. Leroy requested that, in place of flowers, donations be made to the NAACP at naacp.org, or by sending a check to the NAACP Membership Department, 4805 Mt. Hope Drive, Baltimore, MD 21215. Leroy counted each day a blessing, he enjoyed the little things in life, and he left every room he entered with the immortal words of Mr. Spock, "Live Long and Prosper."
