Roy was always in a good mood. He would stop, talk to me, and cheer me up every time
I saw him. He would offer to help me any way he could without reservations. He is a good friend of mine and will be sorely missed.

one of the most screwy all over the wall persons i have ever known in my life.
you could be mad at Roy one week and the next he would be there to help you out no matter what the problem. a lot of time Roy was full of it but he, I, and my son Logan talked cars and trucks so many times through the years I am going to miss it very much. he had his demons but so do all of us. rest in peace Roy. I'll always call you friend.
