Roy also enjoyed spending time with his family and he and Lora traveled when they could. Roy was the biggest joker and enjoyed pushing anyone's buttons that was handy.

We were so heartbroken to learn of Roys passing. His Aunt Edna, cousins Deborah, Dorothy, Jim and Bill (with their families) send our love and prayers to the entire family. I Will remember always that Roy and I had a running feud about all the Missouri curves in the road. Always told him they should be stretched out and he always said those curves had better views than the Kansas flat land. . I love you cousin, will look forward to seeing you again someday.

I was there from the beginning of Roy and Loras love. Stood with Lora at their wedding. They were just what each other needed at that time in life. Roy was always the character not sure if he was joking or telling the truth about something. Roy was always there if anyone needed anything. Forever our friend!
