My thoughts and prayers are with Roy's family during this difficult time. Roy was truly a remarkable guy. He constantly stood at my side, helping to complete the most overwhelming tasks. He was the most important cog in the administration of HQ of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service. Plus, on a more personal level he would provide me the sweetest honey from his hives, until he was shut down. May he forever rest in peace.

I worked with Roy several times through out my time in IT procurement. He was always kind and nice to go and sit in his office and talk. He was so proud of his Native history. He knew I went to powows so we talked about that. I told him I was not Native but he said he would claim me as one. When he retired he gave me one of his Chief Angry Dog coins and I gave him a Pendleton blanket. I still have the coin and have always treasured it because
it was given in friendship. He was missed when he retired. Prayers to his family.
