He had numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
His three loves in life were: his Harley, his wife, and his grandchildren. Roy, also, loved working in the yard. He was an outdoors person. His private domain was his garage. Anyone who knew him, knew that he was always out there, day or night. He enjoyed talking to friends, having friends and family stop over. Roy never met a stranger. He loved life and lived it to the fullest! He will be sorely missed by everyone.
Memorial contributions may be made in his name to his wife, to help the family pay for medical expenses, and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary.
