Devon E. Leesley

1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray Continually”

He Prayed for his family

He prayed for his friends

He prayed for his enemies

He prayed for the saved

He prayed for the unsaved

He prayed for the young

He prayed for the old

He prayed for the living

He prayed for the dying

He prayed for our country

He prayed for all countries

He prayed throughout the day

In desperate times he’d stay up all night

He’d even pray over the animals, especially for fish when a line was in the water

He was a son, husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, brother, friend, singer, songwriter, and a guitar picking, God fearing prayer warrior.

Psalm 89:15

“Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord”

Preceded in death by wife Kathynne Lynn Leesley.

Survived by, daughter Joanne (Ed) Grimes, sons Jamison Leesley, and Devon M. (Christy) Leesley.  Grandkids, Bobbi, Amber, Maelynn, Clyde, Cynthia, Paxton, Xander, and 11 great grandchildren.
