Since 1976 they faithfully attended Conroe Bible Church. Roy is survived by his daughters, Kristi Denise LaBonte and husband Scott Allen of Tucson, Arizona, Karla Diane Bussell and husband Troy of Hockley,Texas, four grandchildren, Steven Sweeten jr., Jocelyn Tiffany Burkey, Kayli Desormeaux, Cole Kopydloyski, great- granddaughter, Mackenzie Sweeten, sisters, Pearl Cavin and Helen Woodring and brothers-in- law, Ralph Erwin and wife Erma, Paul Erwin and wife Frances, Kenneth Erwin and wife Fran.

Uncle Roy was a gruff but kind man. He always had a fierce expression on his face but would do anything for you. I was proud to help him prove his lineage for the Sons of the Republic of Texas. He loved that “title” and those bragging rights. We will miss you.
