Roy was such a sweet man, he was my brother-in-law. My husband, Clint was his wife, Fairies brother... we shared a lot of memories with our talks, and text the last 6 plus years after Fairie and Clint passed within 2 months of each other in 2013. Roy just wanted to be with his beloved Fairie and now he is. What a reunion in heaven that was, I’m sure of it !! There to witness it was his daughter Cathy, his Brother-in-law Clint snd his sister-in -law DonnaAnn... they all loved him dearly... RIP sweet Roy, I know you are happier than you have been in 6 years. ❤️U Janice

Roy was truly one of the finest men I ever knew compared to my dad, Truitt which was no surprise that they were good friends when my dad was living. Fairie and my mom, Merle were also good and close friends during Fairie’s life here in Colleyville, meeting at the church that is now known as Journey Church. Dad and Mom, Roy and Fairie were good, good friends for over 40 years. Therefore, it was no surprise that when Truitt and Fairie went on to their heavenly rewards both Roy and Merle remained friends, lending spiritual and emotional support in their respective losses as well as encouragement based on the love of Jesus Christ they had shared for decades. Roy and Fairie were such a concerned friends after Truitt’s passing but even more so after Fairie passed that Roy was concerned for Mom’s deep loss of both her true love but her very good friend, Fairie. They shared many hours in phone conversation, sharing and reminiscing about their departed spouses. Soon they talked daily by phone about all facets of their life including their emotional, mental, spiritual and physical health even including reminders to take their prescribed medications as their own age progressed over the years. I’m not exactly sure when I began talking and texting with Roy regularly but I know it was through Mom’s concern for Roy’s health and his reciprocal concern for Mom. I enjoyed talking with him as he knew something about everything from music, art, travel, politics, technology, gardening, cooking, pets, finance, family relationships as well as the Bible. He reminded me of Dad. Roy was one well read and informed man who was logical, reasonable, understanding and empathetic with his different friends and family. I also know he loved each of his friends and family deeply and prayed for them often. He was a model friend, brother, dad, grandfather and uncle. His presence here on this earth will be greatly missed by everyone blessed to have known him. Godspeed Roy.
