Dennis J. “Jay” LeRoux

April 25, 1935 — January 25, 2023

Dennis J. LeRoux, 87, of Fargo, ND, passed away on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at St. Catherine North, Fargo, ND.

Dennis “Jay” LeRoux was born on April 25, 1935, in Grafton, ND, to T.J. and Blanche (Peterson) LeRoux. He grew up in Grand Forks, ND, and worked as a paper boy. He saved up enough money to purchase his first classic car, a 1933 3-window Coup. Jay had a passion for antique cars and later opened Jay’s Rebuilders Body Shop in Sabin, MN, which he ran for nearly 30 years. He was also responsible for starting the first classic car club in Fergus Falls, MN, in the early 60’s. A club which remains today.

Jay enjoyed fishing and deer hunting with his group near Frazee, MN. In retirement, Jay continued to tinker and fix up classic cars and also spent many winters in Texas.

Jay is survived by his life partner, Jan Kranda; by a previous marriage, sons, Dan, Chris (Shelly), Aaron, Mike (Char) and Corey; several grandchildren; sister, Rita (Jerry) O’Brien; and daughter-in-law, Julie. He was preceded in death by his parents, and son, Jeff.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at 2:00 PM with a visitation one hour before the service at Wright Funeral Home, Moorhead, MN.
