    I remember Roy driving his ’64 Blue Pontiac GP with the soft as a kiss sticker in the side window back in high school. Many fond memories from the 60’s and 70’s. He will be missed. God Bless Roy and his family.

      i met Roy in 6th grade at North Park Junior High School where a number of us were bussed for that one year. i remember him busting my chops about being from “ the other side of town” and “the rival junior high school “. He turned out tove one of the nicest guys in our class and we reconnected at LSHS where the two schools become one! RIP Roy.

    Roy was a huge part of my life since I was 17 when I first met him at the Pleasant Valley Tavern bartending. I have no words on how much I’ll miss him, I guess I’ll tell him when I see him in Heaven because life is hell and we all go to heaven ❤️🙏✨️
