Roy was the first person our family met when we moved across the street from him in 1999. He came over the second day we moved in. Seeing I had 2 young children, a garage full of furniture and a husband who had gone to work, he didn't say a word but started helping bring boxes into the house. Over the next 19 years he was a kind friend with a great capacity for understanding human nature, a wonderful sense of humor and was always willing to help anyone in need. We had so many awesome chats on his front porch sharing a diet coke and swapping stories. One of my favorite memories with Roy was the first Christmas I was on my own. Roy came to the door and asked me to come over for his "special" eggnog and a car chase game. After losing many times while playing the game, I started to reverse my car and go backwards. Stunned, Roy said, "Pat you cant do that" I responded with " Oh but I can Roy and I just did!" He started to reverse his car as well and we finished the game. We laughed and laughed. He made a sad day a happy one. That was Roy. Boy he loved his girls, he was so proud of them both. The world is a duller place with him gone. My condolences to Sue, Hailey, Sam and the extended family and friends. Pat Clare
