Sot sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. Always enjoyed seeing him in our home with Andrew. My thoughts and prayers will be with the family during this most difficult period.
Thank you for blessing our life Roy You will truly be missed. You are loved now and forever, Mike and Kathie Coleman
Roy was like a little brother to me & although it’s been a while since I’ve seen him, I am so sad that he’s gone. Mike, Laura & Justin, you will all be in my prayers.
Roy and i become friends the last couple years. He was kind to me and would visit me when i was home suffering from an injury. I learned from our many conversations that would last hours sometimes that he loved his family more than anything. I will miss him.
Laura, Mike, & Justim,
I am so so sorry for your loss! Roy was one of Andrew’s first friends after we moved to Lee’s Summit. Always a good kid! He will be forever missed, Never forgotten! You are all in my prayers
Blessed to have met you and had the time we did together. You were kind to me and my father and that is the memory I will keep. You will be dearly missed.
The family and loved ones are in my prayers.
I will miss my friend/brother. Roy has the biggest heart I’ve ever known. I loved being ornery with him. He always made me laugh even on the darkest days. And gave the best hugs known to man. I miss you forever. Laura & Mike I love you and I’m so sorry.
I will miss my friend/brother! Roy was one of a kind, truly. I love being ornery with him. He made me laugh so hard, I’d cry. He gives the best hugs. He will make you laugh on the darkest days. I will miss you more than you know. Laura & Mike, I’m so sorry. I love you two.
Like my sister said, but on the other end of it, Roy was always like my older brother, rough housing included! i have lots of fond memories of dirt clod wars, playing Nintendo in his basement (still think he was cheating on Mortal Kombat), random kid/teenage hijinks (he shot me in the butt with a bb gun once, lol), & many more, but it was always a blast! 🙂 The world is minus 1 good fella, for sure! But no one that knew him will ever forget him!!
I am so sorry for your loss. Roy was a great person. He will be missed.
I just want to say prayers out to the family for this unexspected happening. Roy I’m go to miss you brother he was a truly awesome person that was a strong individual and creative. A great friend not only to me but to others as well. Going to miss him never to be forgotten I love ya bro. R.I.P
I went to highschool with Roy. He was a hell of a guy. I didn’t get to see him at our last reunion. It’s so sad to hear of classmates passing. He’ll surely be missed. I remember Roy as a funny,sincere and awesome person. Always knew how to make people laugh. God speed Roy and save s seat for me .
1994, the year we first met. It was puppy love at first sight for me. I day dreamed of calling you mine. We grew up and drift apart. 10 years later we crossed paths again. We were inseparable. I finally got to call you mine. Puppy love turned into real love. You showed me what an amazing man you grew into. The stress of being an adult put strain on us and we parted ways again. I am not ready to say good-bye, So, I will always remember, Roy, the boy I met and fell in love with in 1994.
All tho I met you once you made me laugh god speed friend. Condolences to the Peterson Family Ythe the angels that watch over them lead them through this sad time.
