He firmly believed that every house needed a sun room and back porch and built innumerable versions across the county over the years, routinely adding them to every home he occupied.

In accordance with Leas wishes, no services will be held. His remains will be cremated and his ashes buried near Tucson, AZ alongside those of his deceased wife. The family request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Leon Millsap Senior Activity Center, Danville, AR where he and his beloved wife Modean spent many happy hours sharing meals, road trips and card Games with their friends. And in loving memory of Lea, share a joke and laugh out loud.
