Virgil Earl Leezer Jr.

Virgil Earl Leezer Jr., 57, of Higbee, MO, passed away Friday, December 3, 2021 at Boone Hospital in Columbia, MO.

Virgil was born on November 20, 1964 to Virgil Earl Leezer Sr. and Deborah Sue (Wooldridge) Leezer in Canton, IL. He graduated from Salisbury High School in 1983.

In Virgil’s earlier career he worked at A & K Cooperage until taking a position with FedEx where he worked for the remainder of his years.

His family and friends will always remember him for his contagious laugh, fun loving spirit of being a jokester and his willingness to help anyone. Virgil enjoyed fishing, hunting, making bucket barrels and socializing with friends. He never met a stranger and had many stories.

He is preceded in death by one son, Virgil Leezer III (Little Virgil) who was the light and joy of his life and his whole world. After graduating high school Little Virgil joined the Marine Corps. He then had plans of joining the highway patrol after retiring from the Marines. Virgil was so very proud of the man his son had become and the path he had chosen for his life. Unfortunately, God had other plans for Little Virgil and he was called home on March 12, 2005. Also preceding Virgil was his parents, Virgil and Deborah Leezer; one brother, John Leezer; paternal and maternal grandparents; paternal and maternal great-grandparents; several uncles; aunts; cousins.

Virgil is survived by one brother, Virgil A. Leezer of Clarksville, TN; four sisters, Wanda Palmer of Lewistown, IL, Diane Lowe (Rich McCoy) of Lewistown, IL, Cathy Leezer of Canton, IL, and Debbie Hunt of Boonville, MO; 16 nieces and nephews, Jake, Adam, Myron, William, Lukus, Chad, Eric, Alex, Jason, Joe, Jessica, Jayna, Jenny, Jeremy, John, and Liz; aunts and uncles; great nieces and nephews; many cousins.

A funeral service celebrating Virgil’s life has been scheduled for Saturday, December 11, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. at Pathway Memorial Funeral Home in Moberly, MO. with internment to follow at Higbee City Cemetery in Higbee, MO.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 12:30 p.m. until the time of service. Memorials in Virgil’s honor are suggested to the Higbee Booster Club.
