Every time I seen him he would tell me a story that mom had told him as if he we're telling me to comfort me as if she we're there telling it herself loved every minute of that story. I will definitely miss those stories from him and also Mr Roy tell Mom I miss her

My daughter, Daphne, is Roxie's Goddaughter. Which means Roy became "Grandpa". She loved going over to the house. They loved playing games together. He loved Daphne just as much as she will continue to love him.

I have taught Daphne that butterflies are the souls of people that have left this world. And we have seen another beautiful butterfly the last couple months.

Roy, you are greatly missed, but we will never forget you. Thank you for raising such a beautiful Roxie. Thank you for blessing my daughter with the love of a grandpa.

RIP, Roy.

It's been hard losing Roy. He was a great husband to my sister, Carolyn and a great father to my niece, Roxie. I have many memories of him that will be cherished. He had a great sense of humor that always made family gatherings fun. You will be greatly missed, dear bother-in-law!

My cousin Roy was an amazing person he will be miss but not forgotten.
The times we would go visit him and Carolyn in Arlington ,
we always enjoyed talking to him about his childhood days back in Anton. ( mostly about football ) this picture was taken during the Texas High School state finials at the Cowboys Stadium.
He would always say that we were like brothers because his mother and my mother were sisters and his father and my dad were brothers.
We’ll see each other someday, May you RIP by brother Roy.

Oh where to begin. I’ll start with the memory that started it all. TRACK! I was a long distance runner which meant I would run the very first race of the night AND the second to last race. That meant that if you wanted to watch me in both races, you were there for the entire time. Even though I didn’t have my ‘parents’ there to watch, I had the very best cheerleaders there. Roy and Carolyn would sit there and wait until my last race. And through all of the yelling and cheering, there was always that one deep, stern voice that always stood out. “RUN MIJA”.
Fast forward to just a few years ago when my oldest decided that she too would be a distance runner. Guess who was there cheering her on! Yelling the very same thing to my baby...”RUN MIJA”. I felt like I was back in high school when I heard him cheering her on. Made me tear up the first time he yelled that to her.. Her grandpa! The ONLY Grandpa my girls knew and LOVED so very much.
I wished there were more people just like you Pops! I miss you already and believe me when I say... I will think about you EVERY TIME I mow this dang yard. I know that you are looking down at me right now and shaking your head and laughing at that.
Thank you so much for being that special “father” to me!
And that even more special grandpa to my girls.
I love you with my whole heart.
Gina Nault.

Rest in Peace brother. Although we were not super close growing up due to our age difference we still kept in touch.
I will always be grateful that you & Carolyn allowed me to move in with y'all in Arlington after I got out of the service where years later I would meet my wife of 30 years & raise 3 beautiful daughters.
Mom is no doubt holding you tight. 🙏
