Me and pop used to go fishing and crabbing together, and we used to bake together, he would always tell me so many stories. I really miss him, and his story’s, and his random calls, and him coming over really early in the morning. He also took me to breakfast a couple times, it was always Cracker Barrel. All the good times we’ve had together will be cherished, I love you pop.

My condolences to all of Roy's family from ours, his friendship and good nature will be sorely missed. We both enjoyed the oilfield and all the adventures that came with it. I first met Roy on a project in India and to say the least it was a challenge. He took it all in stride with the years of experience behind him. Despite being firm, he had a sense of humor that kept moral up while we were away. No matter what, Roy always stayed in touch over the years. I have to admit I was hoping to get him up here for one last fishing trip! As Roy said to me many times: "God Bless you and your family" Thank you Roy.

First & foremost I would like to express my sincere condolences to all family members and especially Lynn Milliman Burton because I met her along with Roy and Judy in about 1984 in Singapore.
Roy was one of the most sincere family and work orientated persons I have ever know. Roy had a rough and tough exterior but he had a heart that was as large as the universe.
May your rest in peace good friend because God knows that you have suffered so much physically over the last few years. I do find it appropriate that you were reunited with Judy on your 50th wedding anniversary.
God Bless you.
