Leonard was born September 17, 1936, in Union County, North Carolina, a son of the late Boyce Edward Baucom and Julia Little Baucom. Leonard enjoyed being outdoors, and spent many years with Baucom Brother’s Farm. A man who loved his family and family gatherings, Leonard valued time around his loved ones; at home, at the beach, or at Maggie Valley. Remembered for his Sunday afternoon drives to look at his crops and sitting on the front porch with his wife enjoying conversation and God’s creation, he leaves many memories behind with his loved ones, and a constant reminder to appreciate the simple things in life.
Mr. Baucom is survived by his wife of almost 58 years, Barbara Griffin Baucom, a daughter Wanda Baucom Byrum (Mike), a son, Darrell Leonard Baucom (Alisa), four sisters; Peggy Russell (Robert), Doris Knight (Barry), Vickie Helms, and Coralee Manus, four grandsons; Brian Hinson (Abby), Jake Helms (Hailey), Clayton Baucom, and Mason Baucom, three great-grandchildren; Michael Hinson, Cason Helms, and Sawyer Helms. Survivors also include numerous nephews, nieces, and cousins.
In addition to his parents, Leonard was preceded in death by two sisters; Mae Parker and Francis Thomas, two brothers; James Michael Baucom and Johnny Ray Baucom, and three brothers-in-law; Sam Helms, James “Pete” Manus, and Donald Parker.
