Although I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with Roy, I do remember him taking Kathy and I on a vacation to the Grand Canyon when we were young. I also remember going over to his house with Kathy. One funny thing I remember was him making us each eat a huge bowl of black eyed peas and I am pretty sure Kathy had to eat hers AND some of mine, or we may have snuck some in the trash - I’m not sure which of the two. :)

I know how hard it is to lose your daddy, and pray for comfort for Kathy and all of the family during this difficult time!

I have many fond memories of Uncle Butch, as I called him. We corresponded through letters for a while many years ago. I remember him at my wedding in 1977 and was so happy he attended. May he rest in peace in the arms of the Lord.

I had the pleasure of meeting Roy as a very young girl - Only 4 years old! Kathy and I spent many weekends with him as we were growing up. Roy always kept an impeccable home and was full of laughter! You could see the sparkle in his eyes! He took great delight in his children! He loved really good food. He taught me to know what a good charcoal broiled steak tastes like - He introduced me to Chateaubriand :)) ( I am still a bit of a steak snob today) He always made us the most wonderful breakfast in the mornings as well as introducing us to James Coney Island for Chili Cheese Dogs! We spent many hours playing dolls and climbing all over his front porch area on the weekends. Roy loved to have fun and wanted to make sure that we kept our Joy in life. He was always teasing and joking around with us. He loved deeply and wanted to make sure that we were always doing well and Enjoying our lives! Roy always treated me like a daughter. I was very blessed to have him in my life. He will be in my heart forever!!
