Obituary

Leonard Joseph Flory 81, formerly of Clayton, GA, passed away at his residence in Franklin, NC on February 11, 2020 after a brief illness.
He was born on February 8, 1939 in South Mound, Kansas, to Bill and Ann Flory. Leonard spent his childhood years growing up in Independence, Missouri. According to stories he was a spirited little boy who loved life and his BB gun. His family then moved to Miami, Florida in his early teens. It was in Miami that he discovered a passion for stock car racing. Another pass time he enjoyed was hunting snakes to take and sell to the Miami Serpentarium. Miami is also where Leonard found and married the love of his life Martha “Marti”. Together they forged a bond that would sustain their marriage for 58 years. In the late 1970’s Leonard and Marti pulled up their roots and moved their family to Rabun County to be near his parents. He then joined forces with his parents and Flory’s Paint and Wallpaper came into being. Some 42 years later at the end of 2019 they officially hung their last roll of wallpaper and both retired. They were avid bowlers and he bowled up until the end of 2019. Both were very adamant about donating blood. Between the two of them they donated over 7 gallons to the American Red Cross. Leonard was a United States Army Reserve Veteran where he was Honorably Discharged. Most of all he was a son, husband, father and gramps to what he loved the most, his family.
Leonard was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Ann Flory as well as one sister Wilburta “Billie” Jean. Leonard is survived by his wife Marti; his two children, Dana Wood (Mike), Danny Flory (Becky); two sisters, Betty Bradford and Judy Flory; his five grandchildren Taylor, Jordann, Kasi, Nate, and Kortney and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends from 6-8:00 p.m., Monday, February 17th at Macon Funeral Home.

Memorial donations can be made to CareNet, 130 Bidwell Street, Franklin, NC 28734.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
