I would like to express my sympathy To Roy's daughter and the whole family for your loss. I have not seen Roy since the last Cantrell reunion several years ago in Lowell, NC. He is my 1st cousin. His mom Myrtle was my father's sister. My dad was Newell Cantrell. I did get to talk with Roy then. I do remember playing with him and his brother Troy when we were very little....maybe around 4 or 5 years old in Andrew, NC. This was before our family moved to Gastonia. Sending prayers and thoughts to everyone.

Roy was my 1st cousin. I did not know of his death until after he had been buried. I am so sorry as Roy was one of the best people who ever lived. He was always kind and pleasant. Our family will miss him very much. Condolences to his family.
