Leon Goree, affectionately known as "Che Che" to his loved ones, passed away peacefully at his residence on January 20, 2024, at the age of 51. Born on December 20, 1972, in Perry County, Alabama, Leon spent his early years surrounded by the love and warmth of a close-knit community, which shaped him into the remarkable man he would become.
Leon was a proud graduate of Francis Marion High School, where he formed lifelong friendships and developed a passion for building and design. This passion led him to establish his own business, Goree Construction, which he owned and operated for many years with great success. His dedication to his craft and his unwavering work ethic earned him respect and admiration from colleagues and clients alike.
At an early age, Leon joined the Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church.
Leon's life was a testament to the importance of family and relationships. He was preceded in death by his brother, Eddie Goree, and sister, Tammy Goree. Their memories remained a cherished part of Leon's life, and he often spoke of them with fondness and love.
He is survived by his adoring daughter, Shaquavia Woods, who was the light of his life. Leon's parents, Elmer and Gloria Goree, will remember him as a devoted son who brought them immeasurable pride and joy through his accomplishments and his kind-hearted nature. Leon's siblings, Carolyn (Angelo) of Marion, Alabama, Chevy (April) Goree of Marion, Alabama, and Windy (Kevin) Curry of Moundville, Alabama, will miss their brother's laughter, wisdom, and the unbreakable bond they shared. His aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends are left to cherish his memory and to celebrate the legacy of a life lived with purpose, love, and generosity.
