Very sorry to hear about Roy’s passing. I always enjoyed visiting with him at the Sadler Reunion.
Doug, Chris and Sandy Berger
We met Roy & Barby in 2000, our seats were beside each other in old football stadium. As time went on & got to know each other, Roy seemed so impressed with our daughter’s enthusiasm for life and being in the band. He kept in touch with us after her high school years, and after college she began working at Applebee’s, he always stopped in to visit her or have us come for a drink. Loved his stories about his friend in the Cayman Island and time he enjoyed there. Roy was a great friend. His smile will be missed. Our sympathy to the family. .
Roy was such a nice man… I enjoyed serving him a drink at Buds many years ago. My deepest sympathy to his family.
I’m so sorry. Was shocked to see this as I just saw him at the Elks about a month ago. Roy was a great guy. He will be missed.
Praying for you all. May His peace and comfort be yours. Praying Jesus will meet you.
May He be with you
