He has always placed a high level of pride and commitment in both his physical condition and the tasks that he has finished. I appreciated the fact that Roy would never hold back his opinions, regardless of who they were directed against.
When Roy would go out into our neighborhood and start a work force project, he would take a tremendous deal of delight in making certain that the task was completed to the highest possible standard. When Roy finished a project, he would frequently email me images of it so that he could show off his work, and his creations were always worthy of being shown off. In addition to his duties as a Deputy Sheriff, Roy was a devoted family man who cherished the relationships he shared with his wife and children. We will do all in our power to keep your memories intact. I pray that you find eternal rest.
