Roy was a wonderful man, true to his family and friends, seems Roy never knew many strangers, and many knew him, quiet at times, but loved talking bout his family and the wife he missed so dearly, I only knew Roy 4 short years, but he always loved to see me come and mow his grass. After I finished, he'd always come to the garage with root beer in hand, and talk bout many things. I loved to hear him talk to about Mary, the absolute love of his life... I will always miss seeing Roy, as he was my inspiration on how to truly life one's life....REST IN PEACEFULLY ROY..
