Condolences to our neighbor David Millsaps and family

Leslie MillsapsWith deep sorrow, we report that our neighbor Leslie Millsaps died Thursday. Leslie was stopped in heavy traffic on Interstate 40 in Davie County when her car was rear-ended. Our condolences go to her husband, David, and their children, Megan and Clay.

Leslie and David have operated DLM Builders, renovation specialists, for the past 25 years. Their first project together was their own remarkable Queen Anne cottage on Rankin Place. Leslie held professional certifications in remodeling, green building practices and aging in place. In 2017, she and DLM were featured in the “Made in Greensboro” campaign produced by Action Greensboro and the city of Greensboro.

Leslie was a board member and secretary of Preservation Greensboro. She also was an active volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the Greensboro Builders Association. She was well known among her friends as a yoga practitioner.

Leslie was a good neighbor, a friend of many College Hill residents and an engaged member of the community. She will be missed.

    I attended yoga at CUMC with Leslie some years ago. It was during her time of Colon issues and I admired her resilience and determination that nothing was going to get her down. She was a brave soul. There are no words for this awful tragedy. My blessings are for everyone who knew her and the precious family.
