Although we were neighbors for over a decade it was only a few years back we became good friends and enjoyed like kind hobbies. Im astounded at his accomplishments in my lifetime and regret our lives paths had not crossed much earlier.

May god give you and family peace during this time! We love you Rita, Vanessa, and Adam! I will never forget the trip we took on the sailboat! Roy was a good man, father, and husband. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33

Roy was, is and will always remain a man whom I respect the most. Amazing in his grace and strength. He always portrayed love for others like you were his family. He had a warehouse full of talents and achievements, and yet; you would never know it from the way he carried himself. He will always remain with me, and us all; through his actions and the memories he blessed us with. Rest well Roy. I pray we meet again. I love you.

I had told Roy during our 50th Reunion that he was one of my high school Heroes. He had athletic prowess, but was always kind and generous with his time and efforts. I don't think I ever saw him without a smile. He was a valued friend and he will be missed by me and all of our classmates. Rest in Peace!
My condolences and prayers to his family and friends.
