We have very sad news; two of our longtime Members have passed away. We are very saddened by both deaths. Bill Reeser passed away on April 12th, 2020 & Leroy Lassiter passed away on April 23, 2020.
Details on Bill's celebration of life have not been determined and will be posted as soon as that information is available.
Leroy's obituary follows:
Jesse Leroy Lasiter, 87, Greenwood, died peacefully on April 23, 2020. Leroy was born June 15, 1932, in Bargersville, to the late Harry and Hazel (Parker) Lasiter.
Leroy graduated from Center Grove High School in 1950 and proudly served in the United States Army during the Korean War. He worked for Spivey Construction for 40 years, retiring in 2016 as a Draftsman Architect. All who knew Leroy were well aware of his passion for the Ford Mustang, having owned and preciously cared for several award-winning vintage Mustangs. This led to his 39-year affiliation with the Mustang Club of Indianapolis, where he served as president and vice president for 5 years as well as a member of the board of directors for numerous years. Leroy’s connection with his Mustang family and participation in the many trips, outings, car shows and parades, including the Indianapolis 500 Festival Parade, brought him much happiness.
In addition to his parents; his beloved twin brother, Roy Leon Lasiter, preceded him in death.
Survivors include his loving and devoted wife, Helen (Baker) Lasiter, to whom he was united in marriage on February 22, 1972; children, Mark (Marcia) Lasiter of Greenwood, Norman Lasiter of Indianapolis, and Cindy McConnell of Greenwood; brothers, William, Donald, and Harry Lasiter; sister, Doris Rhodes; grandchildren, Tyler Lasiter, Katelyn Lasiter, Trevor Lasiter, and Emma McConnell; great grandchildren, Lilly Tribby, Liam Tribby, Olivia Tribby, and Hadley Lasiter. Leroy’s greatest source of joy came from the love he received from his children and grandchildren.
There will be a private graveside service for immediate family and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Mustang Club of Indianapolis in care of Sue Likens, 5027 Mount Pleasant Center Street, Greenwood, IN 46142.

Our thoughts and prayers are with both families. Leroy and Bill will be so missed.
