Mimi, Carlene, Jimmy, & Family, We were blessed to have been able to see Roy one last time, when he and Mimi visited Los Angeles a few weeks ago. He enjoyed reminiscing about his childhood, WW II, his children, and grandchildren. Family definitely was important to him. He kept sharing that he was very blessed. Our hearts are with you as you grieve the loss of such a special soul.

Roy was a special friend and neighbor. There were so many stories he shared and so many porch visits. Roy never missed thanking everyone for their visit. We have so many memories…birthday celebrations, having dinner together, and watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. I wish there was more room for more pictures. We love Roy and he will truly be missed!
