LEROY VAUGHN 

Lewisville Mayor Rudy Durham issued the following statement in response to the death of City Councilman Leroy Vaughn this week.

"My deep condolences go out to Leroy's family and friends, who have suffered a personal loss. The City of Lewisville also has suffered a tremendous loss. Leroy dedicated most of his adult life to public service, first as a firefighter and inspector in California and then in Lewisville as a board volunteer and City Councilman. His unique insight will be missed on the Council. His example of selfless service to the community should be an example for others to follow."

Councilman Vaughn, 70, was found dead in his home on Wednesday. No additional information is available at this time, but he had missed multiple City Council meetings in 2016 due to health issues.

Mr. Vaughn was first elected to City Council in 2011 and was re-elected in 2014. He had been serving as Deputy Mayor Pro Tem since last June. He also served as a member of two steering committees with the National League of Cities. Prior to seeking elected office, he volunteered as a member of the Transportation Board, Community Development Block Grant Committee, and Lewisville 2010 Goals Committee.

Mr. Vaughn held a bachelor’s degree in political science and business from the University of North Texas, and a Masters of Public Affairs from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas in Austin.

He worked 19 years for the city of Davis, California, in various positions including firefighter, fire inspector, arson investigator, and building inspector. Most recently, he was a real estate investor and owner of Voninamillion Home Solutions. He also volunteered as a benefits counselor for the Department of Aging and Disability Services.
