Obituary for John Leroy Giles

John Leroy Giles was born on May 15, 1956 in Farmville, Virginia, son of John R. Giles, Jr. and the late Sallie Dailey. He was the youngest of the twin boys. The family lived in New Jersey since 1958. His public education was fostered in Linden, New Jersey where Leroy graduated from Linden High School. Many of his teachers still remember how well-mannered he was and spoke very highly of him.

He was employed by Meals on Wheels in Linden, New Jersey. Previously, Leroy worked for J. B. Williams in Cranford.

Nothing compares to the pride and exuberance of being a dad to his sons, daughters and grandchildren. Leroy also spent some time communicating with family and friends on the internet. Leroy enjoyed cooking and was quite capable in the kitchen. He was also an avid sports fan and his favorite teams were the Los Angeles Lakers and Oakland Raiders. He really loved comedy and always enjoyed a good joke. He could have you rolling in laughter.

Most of all, he had a quiet devotion to God.

On Sunday, September 29, 2019, Leroy departed this life. He was known to be a friendly, loving and caring man and will be sorely missed.

Leroy leaves to cherish his precious memories, his father, John R. Giles, Jr.; two daughters: Trina Rodriguez of Massachusetts and Ariel Giles of South Carolina; two sons: Michael Giles and Ashton Giles; three brothers: Vincent, Richard (Eleanor) and John Leon (Charlotte) of New Jersey; grandchildren: DaShawn, Fabian, Brent, Dream and Rein; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, who will miss him dearly.
