We were his neighbors for a lot of years. We were the best of friends! My prayers go out that he and Winnie will be together. You boys were friends to
My children too. I look forward to seeing you today. May God bless you and your families! Shar Hornung

Great guy! He gave me my first job opportunity. I used to see him occasionally at Eagle Creek golf course. Great sense of humor. Will be missed.

Hi Mario and Joe,
So sorry to hear of Roy's passing. Have thought about him often but didn't know how to reach him or either of you.

Roy and I shared a great time back in our Butler days with studies and card games afterwards. Many, many great memories.

I had the honor of knowing Mr. Minatel for many years. Perhaps the thing that stood out the most to me was his unwavering dedication to Winnie, even when she was at her sickest. He never complained, and always placed her needs above his.
