Community Honors Dyess Airman Killed In Weekend Motorcycle Wreck

News

In the last 5-6 years, four Dyess Airmen have lost their lives in motorcycles wrecks. The most recent tragedy was involving 25-year-old Leanne Destini Locascio.

She was assigned to the 7th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Dyess.

“Leanne was a wonderful and inspiring Airman. She will be missed tremendously by her Team LRS family,” says Master Sgt. Brandy Wess, 7th LRS First Sergeant of Dyess Air Force Base.

Keller Williams Realty Abilene, Leanne’s husband’s employers, is showing their support for her by hosting a Blood Drive with Meek Blood Center.
 
“We know she had to have quite a few blood transfusions after her accident and we want to help replenish that supply and so we felt like this would be a good way to honor her and give back to Meek,” says Suzy Pool, a friend and coworker of Leanne’s husband.
 
The Blood Drive will be on Friday, June 12th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Keller Williams parking lot located at 3140 S. 27th.  The Meek Bloodmobile will be there and accepting donations.
 
Keller Williams also has a GoFundMe account to help Remy and his family with any expenses that may have incurred during this unforeseen accident.  All proceeds raised through this account will go directly to Remy and Leanne’s family.
 
If you would like more information about the Memorial Service for Leanne, feel free to call the Keller Williams office at (325)-629-4488.
