I was deeply saddened to hear of Roy’s passing. He and his entire family were so loving and fun to be around. I spent a lot of good times with all of them in my childhood. He was a wonderful man and will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him. Praying that beautiful memories will comfort his family until they’re reunited again.

Roy had the best stories of the good ‘ole days. He and Dad shared adventures that would rival Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, but their stories weren’t fiction! How blessed we’ve been to have had them as our own and be left with so many marvelous stories and memories. Love and prayers for all of the family, as I know you will dearly miss your sweet, salty Roy ❤️🙏
