Jerome C. Lebo, 91, of Carlisle, passed away on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at his home.  He was born on July 10, 1924 in Carlisle, a son of the late Jerome and Minerva (Calaman) Lebo, and was married to the late Wanda G. (Behrens) Lebo, who died Aug. 18, 2002.

Like many veterans of WWII, Jerome opted to serve his country by foregoing his high school graduation, joining the US Marine Corps in 1943, and subsequently earning his G.E.D. from Carlisle High School after he was discharged from the Corps in 1945.  He was the owner and operator of the J. C. Lebo & Sons Roofing Co., Carlisle for many years.  Prior to establishing his business in Carlisle, Jerome had worked in sales and as a plant manager for the Fry Roofing Co. in Chicago.  He was a member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Mechanicsburg.

He is survived by two sons; Douglas S. (wife, Elizabeth) Lebo of Piedmont, SC and A. Jeffrey (wife, Cheryl) Lebo of Mt. Holly Springs, 9 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by one son, Ronald K. Lebo, who died on Dec. 24, 2015.  Jerome was the last of nine children.

A viewing will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 12, 2016 followed by the funeral service at 1:30 p.m. in the Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St, Carlisle, with Pastor Steve Crews officiating.  Burial with military honors by Cumberland County Honor Guard will be in Cumberland Valley Memorial Gardens, Carlisle.  Memorial gifts in Jerome’s name may be made to the Emmanuel Baptist Church, 4681 E. Trindle Rd, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050.
