Roy was a pleasure to know and spend time with. We always chat about politics, news and sports and his cattle on every visit. He’s favorite sport was cricket as we watched the game when is on TV during summer months. We also often talked about all the quality homes that he builded for all the families to live in for many years. He was a great builder, i’ve ever known.
He was a simple man and yet he was very intense as well. He was a thinker but above all he was a family man. He made sure that his children has what they needed to not only grow up, but to be responsible, hard working, ethical and loving people. He taught his children to help anyone who needed help. He taught them by his example, to work hard, to think and to never give up. We have all been touched by his selflessness and admired him for always being there when he was needed. There is no better way to let you know how much I admired him, not just as my Father In Law, but as the grandfather to my son Julien and their cousins Jorja lee and Ellie-may as well.
You will be forever cherished in our hearts and never forgotten. Rest in peace Roy.🕯🙏😢😢
