There are so many memories of you, just don't where to begin. You were always there with smiles, laughter and caring for both myself and Cory. You helped me raise him with the great nutritional meals we had at Benigans. So glad he still likes milk shakes and cheese sticks. You are missed already. I was so glad when I saw you at meetings, knowing there was a hug and a story to tell. God's blessing to you now that you are flying high with Him and also for Lindsay and Connie. Watch over us all and give us that occasional tap on the shoulder when we need it. Love you Roy!!

Wow! What can I say - Roy was one of kind! This man was generous, fisty, complex & hard-headed all with a big heart. I worked for Roy for 5 years just the two of us for over a year & then took the plunge for growth. He made a success of whatever the situation. While quite boisterous you couldn't help but love the guy. Boy, the stories I could tell! He will always have a special place in my heart and I will miss him dearly. Gods Speed Roy-Boy!

Roy had a great time with just about everything he did. He believed in making the most out of any given situation. There were times that we fought like we were family but after all was said and done, Roy was always the one with open arms to hug when hugs were needed. He was full of advice, whether you wanted it or not. I love you, Roy and will miss you tremendously. Rest in peace, my friend. Lori Moore

I remember when we moved into our new house two years ago you were the first to show up with a most thoughtful and generous house warming gift. A can of SPAM with you business card taped to it. I will save this gift until we meet again. Thank you for sharing your humor,compassion and true friendship with me and all that knew you.Eddie
