I have so enjoyed seeing pictures of the family I heard so many fond stories about. Roy had a heart of Gold, and he will & has been missed by me, as a resident of Haltom City, he frequently would stop by to check on me, has always been there should I call, & loved to tell me about all his wonderful family. I had a card to send him when I heard he was out sick, but didn't have an address & no one ever got back to me to do so at the Water company. I hate that, as I would have loved to be there for him, as he was for me so many times. My sympathy to his wife & children & father who I have heard so much about. He loved you so much! Rest in peace Roy, you have been such a wonderful friend.

So very sorry to hear of Roy's passing. I was fortunate enough to have met Roy and worked with
him at the Water Department Billing Office for a short period of time for the City.

Roy was the Gentle Giant who always made us laugh and keep us going! Roy talked about his
family often and how much he loved his wife and girls! He was proud to be their Dad and Husband!

I will miss Roy, but know he is now well again in Jesus' Kingdom where there is no more sickness
or pain!

God Bless Roy and prayers to his family and friends who loved him so much!

Roy was a good man and brother in law. Whenever we spoke if I had a problem he would always lend an ear and give advice. He was a jokester that would always put a smile on your face. You will be missed brother.
