Bunky, as his friends called him, was a member of a tight-knit youth group at our Baltimore church. We shared countless good times together, not only in church, but at camp, retreats, Sunday School picnics and on many fun occasions. He was a special guy, on the quiet side, but with a great sense of humor. He is the first of our group to go, and we will miss him terribly. I hope I speak for all of those special friends when I say that our group would not have been as memorable without him. Peace.

My deepest condolences to the Hamp family. My brother Louis and I worked with Roy at the Highland Heights Police Department. He was the happiest police officer I have ever known. His smile was as real as real could be. He was always considerate and a very special care for youth.
On the funnier side, he was the best grill chef on the midnight shift.
We will keep Roy and the family in our thoughts prayers.

I am a friend of Roy's youth. I was Eileen Hiltner back then, and he was known to us as Bunky. We belonged to the Youth Fellowship group at the church our families attended. We are the same age, so we grew up together. He was shy, and didn't say much( neither did I back then), but always good company. My sympathy to his wife and family. And to his sister Pat, whom I also remember.

Roy known to his Baltimore friends as Bunky, was an old friend from our Christ Church family. We use to go to church camp and other church activities. As we got older Bunky got married to his wonderful wife Maryanne and eventually moved to FL. After many years Bunky and I reunited. My wife Sherry and I visited FL each winter and visited with Bunky and Maryanne. I will truly miss my life long friend. Rest In Peace my friend.
