    Roy’s family…….prayers for peace & comfort in your loss. We have been long time friends of Roy’s & he will be missed. He was a vital part of our city, during his business years in furnishing appliances for families & he always gave the customer a cost break & a square deal. Other business persons might do well to pattern their dealings with the public after him.

    Roy, a life well lived. The Song “Well Done” comes to my mind. He ran the race, well done. A lovely man! Even though we all will miss him. He has left his ever lasting impression on us; he has left behind his mark on this world. We will carry on his legacy of kindness and love.
