I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Roy. When I was a around 19, I met the family through their daughter Tracy. Roy and Sharon both took me and my son Joshua into the family with open arms. I rented one of the trailers they had on the back of the property and they treated us better then our own family. Roy had a quiet nature about him but he was also very funny and kind. I always have had all of you in my heart. Rest in peace Roy and lots of love being sent to Heaven. Thanks to Sharon for also helping me in those years. I love you and my thoughts are with all of you at this time.

As I set here drinking my morning coffee, I’m overwhelmed with wonderful memories of Paw. We spent a lot of time together and memories of him are everywhere. As he would say, are you coming down for coffee in the morning or come up for coffee in the morning then we’ll get started.
I remember all the projects that we have completed together and the huge to do list that we never got done. As he would say, put it on our to do list, we’ll get it tomorrow, just put it on the golf cart we'll fix it tomorrow. There was no task that Paw would not take on and would stop what he was doing to go help someone else. As we completed these task he would say, coffee time, let’s go have a cup of coffee, wonder if Sharon has any coffee made, I think we need to call it a day and go have a cup of coffee. Needless to say, he loved his coffee and setting in the gazebo or back porch talking about any and every topic.
I remember how he would make comments to Sharon just to get her fired up then raise his eyebrows and wink, how he would clip harbor freight coupons, remind Sharon to save dollar general coupons, as he always knew when the 11% would be at Menards and his items needed lists he made for each store. As he would say, don’t throw that away someone may need that. As Sharon has said, I think you are the only other person on earth that knows Paw as well as me. He loved Jackson and Sharon very much.
I am truly blessed for having him as my friend. He was a book of knowledge and has taught many, including myself, spending a lot of quality time together, being there for him every day and helping Sharon as needed, spending his last father’s day with him and his last days on earth. Until we meet again my friend, your memory will always be close in my heart, I love you as you will be missed every day.

Roy was one of rocks I depended on for over 50 years. He served in Vietnam with my husband and without him and Sharon I couldn't have raised my son. Whenever something broke, Roy was always there to fix it. One of my favorite memories of him is when I was roof coating my mobile home and got scared and couldn't get off the roof. I had my son to call Roy and sure enough, he came immediately and helped me off the roof. I remember many holidays spent playing cards with his folks and Sharon's Mom. They simply do not make men like Roy anymore. His passing will leave a huge hole in our hearts. My love and sympathy to Sharon and Tracy.

I have known Roy over 50yrs. and can never say a bad thing about him. He was kind, loving, supportive and was eager to help others. He was a very hard worker over the years. While battling his cancer he tried to give advise to his wife and friends. He in other words was getting his in order. Roy you will be truly missed by all. RIP
