He met the love of his life, Phyllis Zingrebe, and the two were married on September 22, 1956. They raised three boys in Lombard and Naperville, Illinois.

Roy was very well read and a World War II history fan. He excelled and enjoyed his long career as an electrician. Roy had a positive outlook on life and a cheerful spirit. Roy loved his family, fishing and camping with his sons and grandsons, and golfing with his wife, Phyllis. The family requests that any donations made in Roy’s name be directed to the Parkinson Foundation.
