Robert Leverton, Jr.

The heavenly gates opened Tuesday, March 15, 2011, for Robert Lee Leverton, Jr., a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle and friend.

On January 12, 1926, the sun rose in Groveton, Texas with a new day and a new life.  A beautiful baby boy by the name of Robert Jr. was born to Robert and Victoria Baldwin Leverton Sr.

He proudly served his country as a naval officer.  Robert retired from South Western Warehouse (Cargill Cotton Compress) of Galveston, TX.  After 10 years of retirement he decided he wanted to work again so he worked as a security officer at Bank of America in Galveston, and Delphi Guard Service.  He was a very hard worker and in his past time he enjoyed cooking, working on cars and spending time with his family.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents, brother Joe Thomas, sister Edna Anderson, Myrteal Wheaton, Louise Leverton, Fredricka Kemp and a grandson Toby Leverton.

He leaves his legacy of love and devotion in the hearts of his devoted wife, Doris Lee Leverton; children Tona Walker (Bural), O.G. Walker Jr. (Vernelda), Arthur Leverton, Lydia Lynn Leverton; sisters, Mary Cormier, Juanita Leverton, and Gertha Howard (Falton); grandchildren Bural Walker Jr., Ardwyn Walker, Tyson Walker, and Nicole Leverton; great grandchildren Nicky Leverton, and Tyson Walker Jr.; a host of nieces, nephews, and many other relatives and friends.
