William St. John

August 7, 1937 — March 28, 2023

Carlisle, Arkansas

William LeRoy St. John, age 85, of Carlisle, Arkansas passed away March 28,2023. One of ten children, he was born to James and Maggie St. John. He is preceded in death by two children, Kathy, and Ronnie. He is survived by two daughters and three sons, Carolyn, Rita, Jimmy, William Lee, and Ricky; one brother, Robert; two sisters, Ruby, and Billie; along with many grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Leroy had a very strong work ethic and lived frugally. He worked for local farmers in the rice and bean fields most of his life and in his later years for the City of Carlisle. He said he wished he could have gone to school more but had to work the fields from a young age to help support the family. He shared many memories of his younger life. He was a great farmer, gardener and mechanic and he enjoyed fishing and hunting rabbits. He always had a big vegetable garden for us to pick turnip greens from. He always cooked Thanksgiving dinner for us and made the best cornbread dressing.

He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
