Mr. Overman was born in Randolph County on March 23, 1929, the son of John and Myrtle Hackney Overman. Leon faithfully read his Bible and held close to his Baptist beliefs.

He was always there to help people. Leon adored his family and cherished the time he got to spend with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Leon is preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Betty Overman; brothers, Dean, Arnold, Tate, and Houston Overman; and sister, Mary Alice Williamson.
