I’m so sorry to hear of Roy Boy’s passing. I will cherish the memories of the summers spent at the Skippers house. Roy Boy and I would always go to the park and play basketball and just talk about life. He was such a kind , sweet and loveable person. We lost contact though the years but the memories made will be with me forever. Rest in peace Roy Boy. Love you ❤️

To Mrs. Skipper( mother), Rebecca , Kayla, Jake and Jacob,

I'm so sorry to hear of Roy's passing. Our hearts are filled with sorrow at this time. He was a great guy and I wish we had not lost contact after Jr High. I was so glad to reconnect with him in Sept 2019. Our time was brief together, he was wonderful to me and my daughter.

We sent each other pictures back last April 1st, 2020. It was my final day of dialysis. We were praying hard for each other. I tried to see if I was a match for him. I was not a candidate. It was a pleasure meeting all of you at his house over dinner. He will be missed.

Tiny and Kayla,
Words cannot express our heartfelt sorrow that we feel for both of you. "Roy Boy" had lived a life so full of loving and caring for others, he was generous, thoughtful and always a friend. He was a great "dad" to many during his lifetime and he will be greatly missed.

So, today I stopped to pray and I asked the Lord Jesus to make you a way, to give you His peace and His strengthening grace as Roy Boy has finally finished his race.

He may be gone from your sight ~but never your memories. Thinking of you...In His Love...Tammy and Tyler
