LeeRoy Parcel:  A Multi-Talented Man!       

LeeRoy ParcelLeeRoy began his career in title insurance with Land Title of Cowlitz County in 1979. Working at Thurston County Title when they purchased Land Title in 1989, LeeRoy became Cascade Title's first manager, serving in that capacity until 1997. During that time, LeeRoy obtained his LPO license and assisted the escrow department as well as the title department. After working in other Schreiner family title offices, LeeRoy returned to Cascade Title in Longview as Senior Title Officer in 2001. With the down-turn in the economy, the opportunity arose to help strengthen Cascade Title and make a career change. So after 32 years in title insurance, LeeRoy has joined the escrow side of Cascade Title. LeeRoy brings his knowledge and experience dealing with title issues regarding real estate in Cowlitz County to the closing table to better serve our customers.


LeeRoy and his wonderful wife, Melissa, have 3 children: Kimber, Logan, and Grace. Along with their busy schedule with the kids' activities and school, LeeRoy plays drums with various bands and is in the Praise Band at Calvary Community Church. He is also a long-time member of the Pioneer Lions Club.


LeeRoy is excited for the new opportunity that being an escrow officer offers. He is looking forward to meeting more people in the real estate industry. Cascade Title is proud to announce that LeeRoy has passed his LPO exam to reinstate his LPO license. Congratulations!

November is here and you better fasten your seat belts, the holiday season is upon us!!! My wife is already making plans for Black Friday and I am planning my schedule to watch all the football games!! Are we the average American couple, or what?!! We first will have Veteran's Day cross the calendar and I wanted to touch on some of the interesting facts associated with that holiday. Did you know:


  • Veterans Day started as Armistice Day in 1919
  • In 1938, November 11th, Armistice Day, became a national holiday
  • In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation changing the name to Veterans' Day in order to honor veterans of all American wars
  • As of 2009, there were 21.9 million military veterans in the U.S. Of those 21.9 million, 1.5 million are female,2.3 million are black, 1.1 million are Hispanic, 9.2 million are 65 and older, 1.9 million are younger than 35...


Cascade Title would like to thank all those that have served our country and kept America safe!
