So very sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet father. Happy that I was able to know him. Peace and love to all of his children and grandchildren.

My heart goes out to the family. It’s so difficult to lose a parent!! But I know that Roy is perfectly well in the arms of Jesus now.

You felt the love and Godly spirit every time you were in Roy’s presence. Friendly, kind and very pleasant. Loved his gentle and calming smile. I know his family will miss him very much. We are thankful for the skills he and Rob Brockman taught our son, Brian. Blessings, condolences, and loving thoughts and words for Roy’s family.

Janet and I were so sorry to hear about Roy’s passing. He was always such a delight to be around. He is terribly missed already. Love you all

This man was an interesting, hilarious, wonderful human being. He constantly never seized to make me smile. He was truly an amazing human. Rest easy
