    Keeping your family in our Prayers. So sorry for your loss.

  7. I wanted to remember Roy in a funny situation he and I was in when Roy was in the 7th grade and I was in the 8th,but we had PE at the same time. My locker was about 3 to 4 down from Roy’s but in between us was this massive kid and he for whatever reason didn’t like Roy and was pushing Roy around not realizing Roy’s cousin was standing 5ft away. We Priest’s take care of each other and lets just say big boy wasn’t a "problem" for us anymore, as a matter of fact, big boy, Roy and myself had come to a very good understanding!
    The world has lost a really good guy, but or loss is heaven’s gain.I love you Roy and forever carry your memory in my heart.

    Blessings to Roy’s family and his trucking family. We will all miss his smiling face and his wonderful attitude at work. There are very few who doesn’t have a gripe and is ready to do whatever is asked of him. He was one of those – old school drivers. Now, Roy all your roads will be clear as you are in God’s hands. We will all miss you, but "Knowing What We Know About Heaven" we know you are at peace.
