Our hearts are broken. Roy was the best cousin and friend. Such a sweet, kind soul who never had a harsh word to say about anyone. He was more like a brother and we will miss him until we are together again. Rest in peace, Roy.

Faye, Terry , Pat and Roy’s family.
I remember Roy playing in band with Pat and then marrying Mrs Faye. He has been part of family as long as I can remember.
A caring, humble man who I am sure will be missed by family and friends.
