Obituary for LEON HURLEY

Leon Hurley quietly departed from this life on October 6, 2015 at the Millennium Health and Rehabilitation Center in Edgewater, Maryland.

Leon Hurley was born on August 15, 1929 to the late Ida Priscilla Hurley and Frank Smallwood in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. He was raised by his mother, Ida and grandparents, Priscilla and Charles Hurley. Leon of ten attended St. Edmonds United Methodist Church along with his uncles and other relatives.

Leon was educated in the Calvert County Public Schools. Following the family legacy, he entered the field of masonry as a bricklayer. He enjoyed working on the various construction sites. Leon worked for Literrio Brick Masonry Company, Hurley Masonry and Eugene Hawkins Masonry.

Leon married Berthel Grayson in 1952. From this union, they were blessed with three daughters, Vanessa, Nita and Eugenia. Later, he and Mildred Jones Gross were blessed with a son, Arthur Lee.

For many years, Leon lived in Seat Pleasant, Maryland until his illness and admission to Millennium. He was loved and respected by all of his friends and neighbors. He was very proud of his family and at every opportunity, he spoke of his daughters in Virginia and son in Southern Maryland.

Known for his great sense of humor, Leon, affectionately known as “10-4”, always brought smiles, laughter and jokes to his friends and family. It was always clear when Leon was in the room because he would let everyone know that “10-4 is here”.

Leon leaves to cherish his memories, three daughters, Vanessa Hurley Grant (Haywood), Nita Hurley Cottoms-Murray, Eugenia Hurley Brown (Wilford); one son, Arthur Lee Jones (Thelma); eleven grandchildren, Nikki Washington-Sheppard (Dennis), Steven Grant, Juan Cottoms (Amber), Alfreada Washington (Quentin), Daunte Brown, Erica Mackell (Gary), Nicole Jones, Artra Carpenter (Gerald), Danielle Cromwell (Cory), Darrell Jones (Kate) and Damien Jones (Brandy); twenty-nine great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; uncles, Norman Hurley and Calvin Hurley; special friend, Marie Jackson and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
Leon was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Alvin Hurley Sr.; his grandson, Chris Grant; and his son-in-law, Grandville Murray.

Leon always put his faith and trust in Almighty God, knowing He would never leave him or forsake him. Leon leaves a legacy for us to live, love and laugh.
