He was raised and resided for a time in Massachusetts and Rhode Island then would later lived in several different states where he worked various jobs throughout his life.

In 2004, Roy and his wife Kathleen then moved to Springfield, Oregon until the time of his passing.

With his Italian heritage, Roy loved to cook.
