Our sincere condolences to Sharon and family. Roy became a good friend when he worked at Duff Truck Lines and continued from there. He was always there to help with anything, including re-roofing our home. His work as a brother mason exceeds any that I know and he will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, John & Char.

May fond memories of Roy bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these.  My heart and sympathies go out to you and your family. Proverbs 10:7 The memory of the righteous one is due for a blessing." Something that gives us great comfort is the Bible truth that death is not the dot or period at the end of a sentence, but rather the comma or pause because our dear loved ones will live again. We know that we will see our loved ones again because the beautiful promise recorded at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."  What a truly special day so close at hand to be able to embrace our loved ones again!

Roy was a childhood friend that grew up next to me. He was always happy, with a constant smile on his face. As a young boy, Roy, dirt and mud were one. He was known in the neighborhood as "Mud Pie". We would spend hours at the creek building dams, capturing crayfish and climbing up the 3-foot diameter storm sewer pipe. Roy would always crawl the furthest up the pipe. He was fearless. I lost touch with Roy after high school but I will always have happy thoughts of Roy.

May you see God’s light on the path ahead When the road you walk is dark. May you always hear, Even in your hour of sorrow, The gentle singing of the lark. When times are hard may hardness Never turn your heart to stone, May you always remember when the shadows fall, You do not walk alone.

As young adults Roy and I, along with many others that played instruments use to listen for hours to records of Miles Davis, Stan Kenton and others at his parents' house. My love of music was contributed to as a result of this. Roy was a natural on the bass and his ear picked up licks of the greatest. He of course will be missed but my memories of him and the joy of music gained through our friendship has spread to others and will never end.
